Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 13, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, June 13, 1887 Still feel giddy but perhaps a little better in my leg. Picked the peas and wrote an answer to an advertisement for a country place I saw in the Sunday Tribune from C. L. Blake Sag Harbor L. I. Received letters from Whittredge and from Weir. Mrs. Cornell called. I have seemed a little better possibly today but am tormented thinking over our affairs. I must try to stop this. Henry came and brought me the hedge shears. They are to leave my house tomorrow. I am sure they are sorry to leave. I told Henry he had done all I asked him to do and if it were not that I wanted Tom on the hill I would like to have him stay in my house. He thanked me for letting him stay seven years without rent and said when Tom married he expected he would have to leave. Sara came this evening.
