Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 20, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, May 20, 1889 I wrote to Wood before breakfast asking him about the outing of the Mutual Aid Society last Wednesday. I went down town after breakfast and among my letters received one from Champney writing to resign his membership in the Artists Mutual Aid Society. It has rained at intervals all day. Sara and I with Toms help arranged the plants in the vases in front of the house and planted the surplus in the garden. I also fixed the door bells which had got out of order. Downing and Mary went home by the 2.45 train on the H. R. road and as Mary wished to stop over a train in Pokeepsie to see Julia Wilkinson and Mary Gifford she persuaded Sara to go with her to return tonight, so I am alone here and it seems very quiet and a little triste. I have written to Alice and have read in Fanny Burneys diary. I rather enjoy a soft rain like this but would like a companion.
