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

Thursday, July 3, 1890 It rained in the night and is soggy and rainy today. I went to put the new chain on the well buckets and tore my little finger of the left hand very badly so that I came near fainting. Tom has set out nearly two hundred celery plants and a hundred late cabbages, the latter got from Van Gaasbeck as ours were too large. The celery I raised in the hot bed and they are fine plants. I had a letter from Mary last night. Calvert and Marion expect to go to England in a week or two. Sara and I go to High Falls by the 3.15 train today. Julia cannot go today as she has sciataca and she and John may come out tomorrow. Our girl goes for the 4th and we will close the house. She continues to do well and I think will prove satisfactory.
