Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, March 18, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Went out and bought some fruit to send up home. We are going home for Sunday which is my fathers seventy-fifth birth day. Received a letter from Gus in which she tells me that the picture of the Christmas Greens was almost entirely destroyed by the Express car taking fire. She is bitterly disappointed and I confess I am too. I hoped she would enjoy it so much.
