The Jervis McEntee Diaries - November 7, 1883

Diary Entry:

Wednesday, Nov 7 ,1883 Immediately after breakfast I went to work at finishing the painting of the wood house and got in done by noon. This afternoon I have been putting in glass wherever it has been broken. We are all serene and happy though thinking and talking constantly of our dear mother. Mary and Gussie went over to the Cemetery today. Downing has about concluded to go to Hillsboro with Joe next week and Gussie will remain. We will miss him but I think it will be a good thing for him. A letter from Alice, from Mrs. Weir and Miss Nesmith. She had not received the notice of my mothers death. Also a letter of condolence from Whittredge somewhat peculiar in tone but kind.
