Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 11, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, July 11, 1873 This has been a perfect day. I made a little sketch of a sky this morning and did some chair mending besides. I made a little coffin for Marion, for Dandy's remains, from a cigar box and she thinks it quite too good to be buried. She and Sara came home from High Falls today. Mary and Julia went to New York this morning. I have recieved no word from Gifford and have written Bowyer that I will not come out unless Gifford should come. I finished a letter to Gertrude which I commenced on Monday. I recieved a letter from Menger relative to my pictures for Louisville and Cincinnatti.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
