Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 12, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, July 12, 1890 Down town where I received a letter from Church who says he has not recovered from last winters experience, and wants me to come up there. Beautiful weather. The men are clearing in the hay. I overtook Geo. Hibbard on my way down. He had heard that Sam had been notified to leave his place but would not go, and that he had instructed his boys to commence suit for Youngs removal as executor. He is not on a bed of roses, I fancy. I reset some of the stakes on the hill torn out by the mowing machine. Sara and I went up to Mr. Cross's to tea. There was there a Miss Dunn of Newport, Miss Isabel Forsyth, Mr. Sandean a Swiss, a relative of Prof [Greyot?], a Rev [blank] and Dewitt Roora. We had a very pleasant evening and did not get home until after 11 oclock. We came home in one of Smiths cabs.
