Jervis McEntee Diaries
Monday June 30, 1873
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, June 30, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, June 30, 1873- My father and his brothers (except Uncle Charles) left this morning for Western where they are going to visit the scenes of their childhood. They were a good deal affected when they bade us good bye, impressed by the thought that it was probably the last time they would ever come here. The weather is intensely hot and dry and home has more attractions than any other place to me. I made a sketch of the house today for a picture I am contemplating but it has not been very successful.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
