Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 7, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, July 7, 1889 A calm and serene day. I have written to Lucy and to John Weir besides a note to Phillips and Wells to tell them I do not care to advertise any further at present. Ben Foster came up in the forenoon to tell us Annie Lee had arrived and would be glad to see us at any time. I took him down to the barn and showed him the study of the garden I had begun and then we went over to my studio where I showed him my Mexican studies. After dinner I went down to Johns to call on Annie Lee. The house was open but no one about. I sat down on the piazza and after a little Annie happened down and was surprised to find me there. She has been ill and is still but she looked very well. We went into the parlor where she got me to tell her many things concerning Mexico in which she was much interested. Presently Julia came in and she showed me her flower pictures which she is painting which I thought very excellent in color. Ettie and Mamie Livingston came and after a little I came home. John and Annies brother have driven up to Clermont to return tomorrow.
