Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 12, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, June 12, 1888 Sara and I went up to Kingston last evening and called on the Forsyths. From there we went to John Forsyths and saw them and Mrs. [P?]. Mrs Forsyths mother. Then we called at the Clarks. Saw Mrs. Clark, Mrs. Adams and Kate Young. We walked home and stopped at Rici's and ordered ice cream for the Charities Aid meeting at our house on Friday. It had grown very cool. I went up to Eddyville and fished until nearly 2 o'clock under the dam with a fly hoping to catch a shad as some were caught there a few days ago on a fly but I did not have a rise. It was a beautiful day and a pleasant place and although I was alone I enjoyed it. I utterly forgot that George Van Deusens funeral took place at 2 oclock today. I meant to have gone there. We had replies from three out of town members saying they would be present at the meeting on Friday. This has been a perfect day but it is sad here.
