Jervis McEntee Diaries
Tuesday November 26, 1878
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 26, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wrote a long letter to Mrs. Taylor giving her a full account of Gertrudes illness and death as she requested me to do, which will go on Thursday. Had a note from Mary saying she and Marian will come up tomorrow for Thanksgiving. The Franklin I sent to the foundry to be repaired came home today in nice order and I have varnished it. My mother, Sara and I sat in the parlor and talked of Gertrude and her last days nearly all the evening. I have that dull expectant feeling, in a manner waiting for her and yet knowing I shall not see her again. I sent Mrs. Thurbers French books home to her today by express, which she lent to Gertrude, also a book to Mrs. Monell and several to Church.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
