Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 1, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Sept 1, 1889 This first autumn day has been more summery than many of the days of August. The wind what little there was has been from the N. but the air has been hazy with smoke and the sun set in bank of smothering vapor. Several people have been on the hill inquiring about the lots and looking about. Dick Weiner, his wife and several young lady visitors drove up after breakfast and this afternoon Frank Dewey and his wife, John Van Elton and his wife and Mrs Isaac North came and I went about with them. Later Mr & Mrs Hoysradt with some friends came. It seems to be well advertised and I hope the result will justify our plans. I have been thinking of the Maine woods today and would like to go there in October if possible. I have written to Royal Reed to see if he could go with me if I decide to go. I have also written a short note to John M. Bailey congratulating him on his appointment as collector of Albany. Calvert is having a hard time with his boils which are very painful.
