Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 10, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Aug 10, 1890 Beautiful morning. Comfortable day with fine breeze. In the middle of the night we had a hard shower accompanied with heavy and incessant thunder and lightning but this morning the sun shone brightly, the birds were singing, as I have not heard them for a long time and the landscape had all the freshness of June. It has been warm in the sunshine but there have been clouds and a fine breeze and altogether a fine summer day. I have written to Mary and to Mrs. Sawyer. Tom and his wife came over and settled upon a design for their house.
