Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday April 3, 1879
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, April 3, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Went to the Academy with Sara, Mary & Tula. The afternoon was stormy and dismal and I have had a feeling of great depression all day. I wrote to my father this morning. Thoughts of Gertrude come to be so often now with a crushing sense of her loss and I long for her more and more every day. I had a letter from John Sanford today. This evening Mary had Annie & Fred & Julia at her house. I went to the Club for an hour to the trustees meeting. It is wintry cold again tonight.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
