Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 21, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, May 21, 1890 Down town this morning. Got a note from the man who came to see me about the carriage house which I answered. Tom has finished the road up from Chestnut St. and this afternoon we put up a fence across the gateway on my place and also across the opening in the hedge so that carriages will hereafter come up the new road. I ordered some notices painted warning people not to cross our premises. Went down to Johns this evening to return his "Conquest of Mexico". He had gone to N.Y. but Julia was there. She told me of Sams call there the Sunday he was here. She thinks as I do that he still wants our place and would buy it if Mary would come here.
