Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 2, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Aug 2, 1890 Warm. I went down town after breakfast and from there to Kingston where I had an interview with Wm. M. Hayes on the free postal delivery for this city. We are agreed upon the necessity for it and that it would be from one Central office and concluded that the best and only way to get it is by petition. He wrote out a short form of petition and I am going to see several people who I think will help and [?] with them and secure their cooperation, if possible. The opposition to it is to me unaccountable and springs only from the most selfish notions. I stopped at the City Hall to look over the valuations on the tax list and find ours the same as last year. I had a letter from Weir from the L. I. coast and Sara one from Lucy delighted at the sale we have made.
