Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 13, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, May 13, 1890 We have had notice from Dewey to remove the carriage house. We tried to give it to Griffiths if he would remove it but he did not want it. I have put an advertisement in the Freeman this morning. Mantustock looked at it yesterday and said it would cost $150 to tear it down. Now I would give it to any one who would take it away. Sara is cleaning our room and fixing up her old carpet. I helped her beat them out. Tom is cleaning out the manure pit which Mr. Crosby has spoken to me about. I went to N.Y. this evening by the 8.25 train. It rained hard as I reached the city.
