Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 5, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Nov 5, 1889 The day has been dark and cool. Directly after breakfast Tom and I went down and voted the full Republican ticket. The town looked very quiet, more like a Sunday than an election day and there were very few about the polls. Tom is at work cutting the apple trees in front of the house to the South. I helped him saw the butt of the one he cut yesterday which I am going to keep for palettes. I am having these trees cut, a Baldwin, a Seek-no-further and a smaller one the species of which I do not know. I am doing nothing about my plans here until it is settled whether I am to have the place and besides I hear nothing of the releases of the lots for North and Dewey which were sent for a week ago.
