Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday August 17, 1879
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Sunday, August 17, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
It has rained all day and been a most cheerless melancholy day to me. I have missed dear Gertrude so much, that the thought that I shall never see her again is almost insupportable. Seeing her mother about brings her vividly before me and I think she must feel her absence here very keenly. I can hardly bring myself to speak of her to her mother and father. I cannot control my emotions. Mr. Sawyer looks much older to me and I think dear Gertrudes death has been a great blow to him. I have written to Lily French today answering her letter received yesterday.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
