Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 3, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Feb 3, 1890 Warm. Snow all melted. Mr. Hoysradt came to the house and paid me $150 on his lot which I endorsed on his bond which we hold and for which I also gave him a receipt. Mr. Jones house has been raised and partly enclosed since I went down last week. Set Tom to work digging to grade McEntee Hillway which we will soon have to use as an approach to our house as Mr. Jones lot crosses it. Went over and fastened the notices on the back property which some one persists in mutilating. Rained in the afternoon and evening. There is no frost in the ground and it is more like May than Feb. Down town and bought a wheelbarrow. Sent my Waterbury watch to the factory to be repaired. Sara and I spent the evening at Cantines with Miss Sheffield and Charlie. The Sheffield complication I fear from what Charlie said is getting on very slowly towards an arrangement.
