Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 1, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Aug 1, 1890 We had a heavy thunder shower last night about 10 oclock. Today has been warm, but a most quiet and lovely day. I have been about over our land on the West of Chestnut St. and it seemed pleasant everywhere. Tom has spoke to me of buying a lot or a couple of lots and building a house and I went over with him and showed him the lots on Augusta St abutting on Woolseys line which he said he always liked. I told him I would let him have two lots there for $800 with the proviso that I was to approve the style of house he built. He is to talk with Minnie who is away from home today. Agnes, Bowyers wife came today. Bowyer is to come up on Saturday for Sunday. Van Eltan and one of his men was here this forenoon for a short time.
