Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 22, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, June 22, 1888 How fast the time goes and how little I accomplish. The year is actually on the wane again and the days will grow shorter henceforth. I went to Rondout and thence to Kingston to secure seats for the Philharmonic concert on Monday evening. Sam Coykendall invited me to go to the opening of the "Fox & Lion inn" near Tannersville on the first week of July. It is their scheme for a colony near Thurbers. I dont know whether Sara and I will go or not. I fixed the cellar door but it is too hot to do any thing. The work of Chester St is going on. I hope I will sell something to pay assessments. Peter Schummaker spoke to me about a lot and Girard had an inquiry for a lot at the foot of the side hill opposite Canfields, but these inquiries do not amount to much. It is difficult to sell anything here. I wish we could sell everything and go away. It is beginning to be melancholy to me here.
