Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, July 8, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, July 8, 1873 Bowyer and Fred Stedman started on a tour in the mountains this morning. I took the horses and drove them as far as the second bridge in the Saw Kill. They were to stay at Meads tonight first going to the overlook. Shortly after we left them (Marion was with me) it began to rain slightly and continued to rain for several hours, but very moderately. When I got back I took Gertrude and Alice down to the train on their way to Boston. It is always a trial to Gertrude to go away and leave me. We have been so constantly together during our whole married life that it seems strange to be separated. Shortly after they left Maurice brought up from the post office a beautiful Russia leather belt mounted with silver a [?] present from Gifford. I have sent it on to her. In the afternoon Sara and Marion went to High Falls with Annie Norton so that our family is very small again. I wrote to Church yesterday telling him why we could not come up there now for a visit. I am reading "Le Maudit" a sharp criticism on the abuses of the Catholic Church.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
