Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 12, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Aug 12, 1880 Painted in my studio all forenoon. A letter from Mary from Hillsboro, one from Sara to my mother. A letter from Mary Gifford giving me account of Sanford who she thinks a little better but not much I fear from what she writes. Mr. Bachelder wrote me a note and returned me all of Gertrudes letters which she had written to his wife. I have been reading them. What lovely letters so full of sweetness and interest and so like her dear self. I dont wonder that she made every body love her. Another beautiful day, a little warm but a thoroughly beautiful day. Mrs. Crounse called with Miss Colin while we were at tea. She and Mr. Crounse are going up to the Rangley lakes on Monday.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
