Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, July 2, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, July 2, 1872- The weather remains intensely hot. Laura started for her grandfathers (Mr. Tomkins) today. I took her down to the ferry to meet her Aunt Laura, where I saw Mr. Lindsley who told me that the plaster mill at Hillsboro burned last night and that Joe Tomkins will probably come on immediately. I doubt whether they will rebuild the works there. The tariff is such that they could manufacture the plaster here as cheaply as there and I should not be at all surprised if Joe and his family would all be back here directly.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
