Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday November 9, 1878
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Saturday, November 9, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
It has been cold and windy today but bright and clear. I have been in my room most of the day writing and arranging many things. I have not felt so sad as I did yesterday although I have looked over many of Gertrudes things. Sara and I went to the cemetery this afternoon. She took over some red berries of the sweet brier and some white ones of the wax plant. I had a letter from Fitch asking me for a picture for the Bryant memorial meeting at the Century on Tuesday evening and one from Calvert speaking about a friend of Giffords who wants my room and wants it immediately but I wrote him I was not ready to give it up now.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
