Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, July 26, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, July 26, 1872- My letter to Julia Wilkinson was answered by Gifford who fortunately had not gone. He had wrote to me that Whittredge was to come down to Hudson either on Thursday or Monday and they would leave the following day. Next day I received a telegram saying Whittredge would arrive on Monday and that they would expect me Monday. I answered immediately that I would join them on Monday. I spent a good part of yesterday packing my traps. My father and Sara went to the Overlook by the 3 oclock train. Today it is raining and I dare say they wish themselves home. Julia Dillon sailed for Europe on Wednesday. I received a letter from Mrs Winter today telling me that Mr. Shaw her brother-in-law dropped dead a few days ago in the act of laying down a carpet, and asking me for some money. I wrote her that I hoped to be able to send her some about Sept. 1.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
