Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 19, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, July 19, 1889 After I came back from down town this morning I took Tom down to the fence on the side hill and had him rake the leaves away from it into little heaps to which I set fire. They were damp and did not burn readily but made a great smoke. Mrs. Dr. Smith and others came running down thinking something was on fire, Van Deusens stable probably. We worked until noon when it began to rain and has rained all the rest of the day. I had a short note from Calvert in which he said he was trying to arrange to come up on Saturday. Tom went up to Kingston at noon and he told me when he returned that he went up for the money the Shufeldts have owed him for a long time and that they paid him.
