Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 23, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Aug 23, 1889 A misty but not very warm day. I have set Tom at work at the old fences. I went down town and received a very friendly letter from Booth agreeing to do, as I know he would, any thing in reason in the matter of the release of the lots. I have acknowledged the receipt of it and will send it tomorrow. Calvert has staid in bed all day[.] One of his boils has developed into a carbuncle. I have been over on the back part of the property where I discovered some one has been carting away sand from the street. One has to be on the watch constantly against these lawless characters. Gussie Pullman came this evening and we have urged her to stay over Saturday.
