Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 5, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, June 5, 1887 A gloomy dull day. I have written to Eastman asking him to forget our differences. I wrote for Mrs. Anderson who wants to buy Phils property at Santa Barbara. I also wrote Bowyer and sent him Mr. Linsleys letter. Jane and Mary Goetchins came to settle their affairs in Kingston and Mary staid with us. It was a trial to see any one and particularly some one full of troubles but we felt sorry for her and asked her to stay. Presently Mr & Mrs. Cantine and their little girl came. We got talking about Sam and he told me he thought he had given up all present idea of our place and informed me privately that the inquiry made through Mc Causland was from a man who expected to come here in connection with the Portland Cement Co. It was dependent upon some [experiments?] which failed. It gave me an awful feeling of discouragement and I was gnawed with anxiety imagining all sorts of trouble and really have been very nervous all day. I must try to avoid giving way to this worry. Have had a fire all day.
