The Jervis McEntee Diaries - April 4, 1885

Diary Entry:

Saturday, Apr 4, 1885 I slept very little last night and my half waking dreams were filled with Indian encounters and wild adventures on the frontier from the reading of Mrs. Custers most interesting book. The trouble in my tooth culminated this morning and after breakfast I went up to the dentists and he treated it. I bought the Tribune. There was an extended notice of the Academy and almost every one was mentioned, as usual, except me. I cant understand why this is always so. It is raining and a most disagreeable day. I went home by 4 o'clock train. The rain had ceased. Tom Evans was on the train and sat with me. He was going up to Howard Clapps wedding. There was an earth slide on the track near Tappan which delayed the train so that we arrived in Kingston nearly an hour late. My father had retired but Sara told me he was about as usual.
