Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 18, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, July 18, 1890 An ideal day with a cool N. wind and clear, brilliant air. I went down town to get things for a breakfast we are to give on Saturday to Mr & Mrs. Cross. Am studying up a new arrangement of this part of the place in case we close a bargain with Sam. Sara had a short letter from Mary today. She sent Mary one of Lucys letters with a good deal about Downing in it, utterly forgetting there was some criticism on Marion, in it, for sending her a big box by Express with some small things in it of but little account. I think Mary felt a little injured and it looked as though Sara sent it purposely in that account. The above is a notice of the death of Tompkins Van Buren. He was in the 20th Regt. when we went from here for the three months service.
