Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 24, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Oct 24, 1887 Calvert and I have been up to Kingston to see S. S. Westbrook about selling at auction our horses, cows, wagons, harness, roots, hay etc. He is coming to see me tomorrow. We also went to the County Clerks office he to have recorded the canceling of Marys mortgage by my father and I to see what my father got for the Concrete house sold to Mrs. Murphy ($3,800). Girard has sold a lot over at the toboggan slide to Edgar E. Hector for $500. We will give him a deed tomorrow. I am very loth to do all this disagreeable business but it has to be done. John McEntee came last evening and he, Calvert and I talked over matters. We have decided not to ask the [?] for any extension of our powers, and not to do any thing about grading Chester St. Calvert went to N. Y. by the 7.45 train after having signed a blank deed for Keaton.
