Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 21, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Feb 21, 1887 The carpenter worked all day putting up the inside blinds, the closet door and the rod for my curtains. It seems as though I never would get rid of him, but I think he is done now in here. He has still to complete the wood work in my old studio which I had to displace in removing. He will probably put in another day there and I will be thankful if he talks no longer. I had a letter from Sara but no answer from Sam which looks ominous. He may be away from home. My picture "Autumn Fields" went to the Pa. Academy today. I went to Dr. Taylors as usual but as tomorrow is a holiday am not to go. I am tired and begin to be sick of the confusion I have been in so long.
