Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 3, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Sept 3, 1890 The same delightful weather. I went down town early with the maps etc. and from there to Kingston. Kenyon is on his vacation but Eltinge and Sev. Sharpe were there and Kenyon had arranged every thing. I staid until 1 o'clock and got my deed finished and ready to deliver, also the deed of the estate with slight exceptions. The release they will make out and send to Booth with a letter I left to go with it as the one (release) we wrote has to be changed as to date. I shall go to see Sam tomorrow. I wrote another letter, less formal and official to Booth when I got home to explain everything. I am nearly entirely blind in my right eye today and am weak and shaky but I think it is the result of the indigestion I had last week. I went down to see John after tea but he was not in. Mary came this evening.
