Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 22, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, June 22, 1889 A cool, breezy day with Northerly wind. I planted the last planting of corn and worked in the garden while Tom is busy with the hay. After dinner Sara and I went up to Kingston by the car to call on the Romeyns. While we were walking along the street leading to their place we met them in a carriage, evidently going for a drive. They however insisted upon going back against our remonstrances and taking us in they drove up to their place and beyond to a point where there was a view after which we came to the house for a while. When we came away we came with them in the carriage and called on Mrs Hess who could not see us and then upon Mrs Fitch whom we did see. Here we left them and we walked out to Clearwaters where we saw Mrs. C and a Mrs. McKay? [sic] the little "Blancke" who used to come here with the Frelighs. From there we walked home arriving just in time for tea. Jimmy staid here while we were gone as the servant went out also. He is ill with a sort of fever and ague which attacks him every other day. Today was his well day.
