Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 29, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, June 29, 1890 A fine cool morning. I feel better although I am very lame the muscles in the calf of my left leg being very rigid and sore. I have written to Mary, to Royal Reed and to Miss Nesmith as well as a note to the man who wove our carpet telling him we do not like the stripe which we specially told him not to put in. I got the ladder and picked a few cherries as we have hardly had a taste of them. Sara had a letter from Lucy yesterday. They had all been camping our in Henrys Fork. Downing had killed a deer and they had had no end of fishing. Our new servant girl Katy Morn came this evening as she agreed to and that is in her favor.
