Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 4, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Sept 4, 1889 The weather continues thick, hazy and dry. I received a letter from Eastman Johnson in which he speaks of a wish to go to the Maine Lakes. Curiously enough Sara and I were talking to him while he must have been writing to me. I have written him today and sent the letter so that he will get it before he goes back to Nantucket where he is staying telling him of my hope to go to the Maine Woods and asking him to join me. Calvert is still confined to his room full of boils and theories and most difficult for Sara to manage. I went over to the cemetery today and arranged with Port to build the foundation for the stone at Maurices grave which is at the stone cutters and which he says he will finish next week. It is getting very dry. A short time ago we were grumbling at the wet and now we are beginning to complain of drought.
