Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 27, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, May 27, 1889 Still cold and gloomy and rain all afternoon. I went down town after breakfast on the daily errands. When I came back I fixed the chopping knife and put a pane of glass on one of the hall windows. A letter came from Lucy with a postal order to pay for Jamie's shoes and one from Mary telling us that Sedgwick had received the second prize in his room at Mr. Morses school for punctuality, attendance and conduct. I am greatly pleased and have written him a congratulatory note. Last night I slept under four thicknesses of blanket and awoke with a chill. The geraniums and the abutilon we set out in the vases both look as though they had been touched with frost. We have had a good fire all day.
