Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 24, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, July 24, 1890 Threatening weather but only a slight sprinkle of rain. I wrote Lucy yesterday and sent it this morning enclosing a diagram of what we have sold. I expected John Van Eltan this morning to survey for me. He did not come until this afternoon and has been all afternoon with his two assistants running the line between me and Van Deusen from Chestnut to Holmes St. 522 ft. He stopped at 5 in order to see if there is not some record of the line of Holmes St. I had a letter from Bowyer wanting to borrow my tent dated from 7 Bowling Green. I dont know whether to write to him there or at Rankins. He may have left the latter place.
