Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 9, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, May 9, 1889 Very warm. I went to Dr. Browns at 10 who kept me waiting nearly three quarters of an hour but he filled another tooth which had broken away a little and that makes me reasonably well fixed as to teeth for the summer. I went to Rocks and tried on my coat. The suit is to be sent to Rondout. Then to Stearns where I looked over [?] and finally bought a yard for a sample and took a number of smaller samples, then to my room where I wrote up the record of the Artists Mutual Aid Society, packed my trunk and put my room in order for the summer. The express man came for my trunks about 4 and I went down to see Wood. His wife is very ill and has been entirely helpless for some time. Now added to all her other troubles she has Bright's disease. Wood seems serene but I notice he has aged this winter even during my absence. I went to a restaurant and had my dinner and got to the 6 oclock train in ample time. Mary and Julia Dillon who were going up were there. We got home before 9. It was as warm as a summer evening but the spring landscapes were lovely even though the air was very smoky.
