The Jervis McEntee Diaries - October 9, 1885

Diary Entry:

Friday, Oct 9, 1885 Tom and Henry put up the hall stove directly after breakfast but we have not made fire in it yet. There are indications that it will be warmer. I went to Kingston and when I returned Sara and I drove out to the Alms house to see Mrs. Buras about my visit to Katy. Sara is to see Annie and try to make some arrangement for her. Then I went down town on appointment with Dr. Rora to look at a troublesome tooth. Found the nerve was exposed and had to be destroyed. I mailed my Fuller check for $200 to the Bank of the Metropolis. Sara got a note from Gertrude Tomkins directed to my father in which she said she was coming here to spend Sunday if convenient. Would come on the train reaching Kingston at 7 P.M. I mailed a postal [?] of the whole miserable business I fear. Girard and I attended Judge Westbrooks funeral at his house this afternoon. We could not get into the house and heard little of the services. Many distinguished men were present says the Freeman of this evening. Tom picked four barrels of apples from one of the trees just at the corner of the garden below the carriage road. This is about the extent of our crop while all about there is a great yield. Have finished Romola and commenced "Miss Margori Banks[?]"
