Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 10, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Sept 10, 1890 Cold drizzling rain. Went down town. Recd. a letter from Booth who had not yet got the release but would do as I proposed. Went to Kingston to see Sharpe. Kenyon is ill. Sharpe is to send the release to Booths lawyer today and is to have the deed ready for me to sign on Saturday and will send it to me here. Mantustocks estimate on Toms house is $1800--$305 above Dederick & Brink. I have given it to the latter with Toms approval. Dederick came to see me this afternoon. I am going to N.Y. tomorrow to have the contract drawn and he is to come here Saturday and sign it. We have a fire in the parlor this afternoon. I happened yesterday to see a picture of Madame von Glimmer in the World and learned she is in N.Y. Wrote to Stedman today to find out her address.
