Jervis McEntee Diaries
Monday July 7, 1873
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 7, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, July 7, 1873 Sunday and today have been cool and delightful. The papers long accounts of heavy storms and floods in the west which have cleaned the air and tempered the atmosphere. I walked up to the Kingston creek this afternoon and made a pencil sketch of a view nearly opposite the town. As usual there was a crowd of howling boys in bathing just at the spot where I wanted to be. They came around me to look over my sketch but I shut up my book and they cleared out. Mr. Vaux and Dr. Sawyer went back to New York today. I recieved a letter from Eastman Johnson inquiring Mr. Fairbanks address. They expect to go to Nantucket this week or next.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
