Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 20, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, June 20, 1887 I seem to feel a little less helpless this forenoon and Sara has commenced to give me Sulphur. I mean to keep as quiet as possible which seems to me the best for me. Joe Tubby called to see us. He looks about as he always did. Has gone to house painting again and I imagine gets on in the same easy going way. Says he never worries over any thing. Mrs. Van Deusen brought me two books on Faith cure and told me Coe Youngs son had walked about our place last Thursday with Alice and was much struck with it. He asked if we would sell it and she said she thought we would, and asked me our price. I told her to tell him to come and see me so I would sell him the whole or a portion but could not make a price until I know what he wanted. She says he is able to buy, but I dont attach much importance to the affair. It has been a beautiful day and I think I am on the whole improved.
