Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 19, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, May 19, 1890 I wrote a note to Charlie Coleman this morning asking him to come up and spend Sunday with me and if he could not come then to come at his convenience. I went down town to do some errands. It has been showery at intervals. Have spent most of the day clearing out the dead wood from the vine on the back porch and training it properly. Two men have been at work cutting down the large elm back of the barn, a noble tree. It is on [D?] lot and he is going to build. The carpenter Brundage looked at the carriage house today with a view of having his brother (I understood) buy it for a house. He went to see him about it but I have not seen him since. The Freeman this evening announces the death of old Mr. Tomkins yesterday.
