Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 23, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, May 23, 1890 A dark, cold day and gloomy and depressing. I went down town this morning on errands but the day has dragged. There are so many things I want to do and cannot do. Here I have not heart to do things for some one soon to undo. Now that it is quite decided that we cannot keep this place I would like to get over to my place and be putting it in order. Sara had a letter from Lucy today and one from Mary. Sedgwick is to come up here the day before Decoration day to make his last visit before he and Downing leave for Fort Bridger the first week in June. I sent the carpet to Pokeepsie today by Express and wrote to the weaver.
