Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 19, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, July 19, 1890 So cold this morning that a fire would have been very comfortable and has been all day more like October than July. Mr. & Mrs Cross and Julia Dillon and Gertrude Tremper came to breakfast by invitation at 1 o'clock. John McEntee was also invited but did not come. The breakfast was very pleasant and successful and they remained till the afternoon, I think, all having enjoyed it greatly. We built a fire in the parlor after breakfast and found it very agreeable. Calvert came about 9 o'clock in the evening to meet with John and me and Sam this afternoon to decide on his offer to buy the place.
