The Jervis McEntee Diaries - January 5, 1885

Diary Entry:

Monday, Jan 5, 1885 Went home Saturday. Snug winter weather but the snow all gone. Found Sara Tom McEntees wife there and was very glad to see her. She came Friday. Looked much older to me. Sunday I walked down to Poukhockie to see Bessies friends and to give her niece a registered letter. They seemed to feel badly about Bessies illness. I promised to write them her condition. Stopped on my way up at John McEntees. Esther and Marnie were there. John came up to call on Sara in the evening. Our cider had come for John and me, all in one barrel and he had been drawing it off. Came down this morning and got here at noon. Went to work on a large Winter I painted in 1877 and repainted it with a twilight sky. I dined with Fuller this evening at the Hotel Royal restaurant. I met him at the Union League Club. It was a wet disagreeable evening. After dinner we went to his rooms near by and smoked a cigar and looked at his pictures. His rooms are very pretty. I staid until nearly midnight. When I came to my room it was raining hard. I stopped at Marys on the way up to meet Fuller. She had been to see Bessie who was better.
