Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 31, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Aug 31, 1889 This last day of summer the wind has blown briskly from the N. and it has been warm with a thick, smoky atmosphere. The roads are dusty and the grass is beginning to look dry in places. I was down town this morning and got a proof of the hand-bill which is to be posted today. People are making inquiries about the sale and it is evidently pretty widely advertised. I have been twice over on Chestnut St. The hauling of sand goes on but I have informed the employer of the man that if it is not stopped I will take measures to stop it. This afternoon Mrs Gillris and her cousin came up to look at the lots and inquire about them. I showed them around and explained matters to them. I am too full of this business to think of any thing else until after the sale. Dr. Martin Freligh died at his home in Kingston this morning.
