Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 4, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Aug 4, 1889 A beautiful day with a cool and pleasant temperature. I wrote to Alice after getting the vegetables from the garden. Girard came over this evening and told me that Cantine had told him he hoped to be able to sell this place for us. We talked of his troubles which seem to me to be none the less serious the more I examine into them. I wonder if the time will ever come when my mind and all my thoughts will not be occupied with these sordid and annoying subjects. I am tired of the whole thing and wish I could go away beyond the reach of them if there be such a place any where.
