The Jervis McEntee Diaries - May 27, 1885

Diary Entry:

Wednesday, May 27, 1885 Went to the dentists. Wrote to Booth keeping a copy of the letter. Met Mrs. Eastman Johnson as I was returning from the dentists. She wanted me to come up this evening with Whittredge to dine. Whittredge came in later to tell me he had received a telegram from Johnson telling us not to come today, but to come tomorrow. Have made up my mind to leave town for the summer on Saturday. If I had about a thousand dollars now in the bank the summer would look more inviting to me. How perfectly weary I get of being a little short the most of the time, and trying to manage to pay every thing. Spent the evening at home. Mr. Parsons came in. He has recently been appointed superintendent of the Park which is a triumph for him and for Calvert. Downing came in. He is going to Philadelphia tomorrow to attend Walter Mendelsons wedding.
