Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 14, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, June 14, 1887 Have been at work all forenoon making out the form to send to Phillips & Wells putting our property in their hands for sale. I dont expect to hear from it but we may and I feel we must do what we can. I am very dizzy and shaky this forenoon. Have a cold and am tormented with fears of all sorts. This is the 4th anniversary of poor Maurices death and comes to me with a peculiar sadness in the midst of so many other sad things. My father had a fall today and feels a little stiff from it. There is constant danger of this and it would take so little to destroy his comparative [?] and freedom from pain. Mary went home by the 4.35 train very much to our regret. It is such a comfort to have her here. She is coming up for the summer as soon as she can get ready. I sent the description of our property to Calvert who will take it to Phillips & Wells. I dont expect much from this but it is one chance. I wrote to Mr. Geo H. Wells of Wyalusing, Bradford Co. Pa today to ascertain if he is still living telling him I would like to write to him about my father to whom he was very grateful for care and attention when he had yellow fever at the Mansion House many years ago.
