Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Sunday, May 28, 1876, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Have been home for a week. Had a letter from Booth who has sold his place at Cos Cob asking me what he shall do with his works of art & valuables he does not want to sell. He is playing out west coming this way to be at Cos Cob June 6th. Wrote him I would take care of them here and at Rondout and would buy some of his carpets & furniture. Gertrude and I have been at Cos Cob since Tuesday packing and arranging the things which are to go by vessel tomorrow. We staid at the house and Betty the colored woman fed us. Am very tired for it is difficult to get proper help and facilities there and have worked very hard.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
