Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 10, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, May 10, 1889 I had a letter from Mrs. Steele which I got just as I left yesterday and read on the train. She was in Mexico five years ago, at Chihuahua. I can hardly read her writing. It is exceptionally neat and individual looking but most difficult to decipher. This is like a midsummer day. I went down town and had the fertilizer brought up and Winters man helped Tom take down the hall stove and the one in my mothers room which I am occupying now. Tom is applying the fertilizer to the potatoes today, and he had planted the second planting of peas and beans and corn. We have had a copious shower which has cleared the air and done an immense benefit to the growing crops.
