The Jervis McEntee Diaries - June 15, 1885

Diary Entry:

Monday, June 15, 1885 Was up at 5 o'clock and at work down in the garden making a trellis for the tomato vines which I nearly completed by breakfast time. After I had got through my work I took a bath and dressed myself and sat out on the front porch pretty tired, while Sara drove my father to Kingston. It has been a much pleasanter day than yesterday, clear and with very little wind. Miss Ray came while Sara was gone. She is to come to me when her painting materials arrive and I will get her started in her work, perhaps tomorrow. In the afternoon I changed my clothes again, got Girards hose and joined mine to it and led it through the stable into the garden which [?] as far as it would reach. This evening it is raining a little, which is very much needed. A letter from Louise Osman to Girards wife a few days ago tells her her father is to be married this month and that he had gone to N.Y. her letter was dated June 9th.
