Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 5, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, July 5, 1889 A perfect day with wind from the North. Down town to the post office and sent Mrs Church information about the ice cream freezer. Picked some late cherries down in front of the house and then went at the plank walk back of the house which I relaid so as to avoid slipperiness and worked at it nearly all day, and completed it. I have to glean close now to find any lumber to work with, almost every thing having been used up. A letter from Lucy. It is well to be busy. I have had no time today for despondency and discouragement. Called down at John McEntees. He told me Annie Lee was coming tomorrow on her way to High Falls. Ben Foster is still there.
