Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 22, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Aug 22, 1889 Bowyer came in this morning just before breakfast on his way from the canoe meet at the Thousand islands and went away to N. Y. before dinner. It has been cooler than yesterday and the wind is N. W. Yesterday was the hottest day of the season in N. Y. Calvert came up by the 11 oclock train and got here after dinner. He has troublesome boils and will stay here for a few days. Annie Norton came up with Sara who went down to Johns to see Julia, and staid to dinner. Cantine and Miss Sheffield returned from Kennebunkport today and called to see us this evening. I did not ask him if he had received by letter. After Tom got in the grass cut from the streets on the hill today I set him to work gathering up the remnants of the old fences on the back part of our property which are being carried away and shall get a team to draw them to the house.
