Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 6, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, July 6, 1890 A beautiful summer day. No one came until towards evening when the Staples girls and their brother walked up on the hill with a friend. I expected Sam might come, it was such a pleasant day, but he did not and I was not a little disappointed. I wrote to Fred Norton and sent him my individual note for $715 at 3 mos to pay our assessment for paving Holmes St. as he offered to let me have the money. I dread this financiering again from which I have had a rest now of a year, but there is nothing else to be done and I have to use my credit for the benefit of the estate.
