Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 16, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Dec 16, 1889 Sara went to N. Y. by the 7.10 morning train. I was all forenoon writing the deed & copy, the release and the bond and mortgage for Mrs. Emily A. Jones who has bought lot No. 1 on Chestnut St. and in the afternoon I went up to Kenyon & Sharpes where I had to write the bond & mortgage over so as to make them directly to Booth. I left the release which Sharpe was to send to Booths lawyer that night. This took the whole day. I went to Rondout and then came home. I paid Tom his wages today. In the evening I called at Cantines. He was in N. Y. on some business of Sheffields and Miss Sheffield was alone. She told Sara there was some trouble and she was greatly worried.
