Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 29, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Sept 29, 1889 A fine bright morning and a beautiful, still day. I have been alone all day. Have been in the garden gathering seeds and looking about. Next year we will probably have no garden or if any a very small one as a hundred feet square is taken out of the heart of it already and probably more will be sold by that time. The old root cellar roof caved in yesterday or today. It has done its duty. I wrote to Janette a short letter. I leave tomorrow morning by the 7 o'clock train via West Shore and Boston and Albany, expect to get my breakfast in Albany as the train leaves there at 10. All my plans so far have resulted successfully. If my whole trip is as successful we will have a good time. Sara had a letter from Mary. Calvert is in bed again with his carbuncles. Sara came home this evening from High Falls.
