Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 5, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, May 5, 1890 Showery day with beautiful but evanescent effects clearing in the afternoon. I went down town and got our seats for the Musical Festival this week. Tom has set out early cabbage plants of our raising in the hot bed and planted okra and salsify. I set out a dozen mikado tomato plants from our hot bed. The sun came out warm and everything will grow rapidly now. I wanted to paint some of this beautiful spring time but do not [know] where to begin as it all changes so rapidly. Sara and I went up to Kingston to the Question Club which met at Mrs. Livingstons--the subject Columbus. It was a very pleasant meeting and is the last of the season.
