Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 25, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Aug 25, 1889 A fine bracing day with N. wind. Calvert has been down stairs and about all day and his carbuncle seems better. We have talked about the coming sale. I am not entirely confident in the survey Downing has made but I think it cannot be far out of the way. There seems some uncertainty and a conflict of responsibility between him and Calvert about the map and circular they were to have printed and between them I am afraid it will be delayed. People are speculating about our movements here and I want to be able to advertise soon so as to set gossiping at rest. Julia Dillon called this afternoon and Gussie Pullman also who staid with Mrs. Anderson last night. She goes home tomorrow.
