Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, July 28, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, July 28, 1873- It has been showery today. Miss Lee left for home this morning under escort of Mr. Radford and Vaux as far as New York. I went over to make another examination of the leak in the roof of my house but could not find it. I went down after Burhans and brought him up to look at it and he thinks he can remedy it. It has annoyed me every year for a long time. I have finished reading "Coriane" which is a charming story with excellent knowledge of character and a little too much French "gush" in parts, with a fine feeling for "art and liberty". Now where shall I find another nice French book? I sent Gertrude the parcel of knives and forks she wrote for for her mother, by express today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
