Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 12, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Nov 12, 1889 A beautiful Indian summer day. Down town early. Found a note from Kenyon telling me the release for Dewey & North had come also a notice of a meeting of the A. M. A. at Woods studio on Wednesday evening. Engaged men to come up and black my stove and put it up. Sara is getting the room ready for the Reids. She had to take the covering from the mantel piece which dear Gertrude made with her own hands and put up many years ago but which had become soiled and faded. I covered a chair while the men were at work on the stove. After dinner I went up to Kingston and got the release and walked back. The fine day is closing with indications of a storm tomorrow. I received a Morelia newspaper today from Roth, giving an account of the death by burning of Miss Bonilla, sister of the young man who kept the hotel [?]. John & Julia came up and spent the evening and we began the reading of Prescotts Conquest of Mexico. I read the first two chapters.
