Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 30, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Sept 30, 1880 The last September day and a very lovely one with a decided fall feeling. Sara and Nannie drove to High Falls. I went out beyond the cemetery and made a sketch in the forenoon. In the afternoon packed some jelly for Gussie and did a little work over at my studio, fixing a board to stop my Franklin if I put up a stove. Julia Dillon and Lily came down from High Falls not knowing Sara was going up. The sun sets tonight at the extreme south end of Olive Mountain. I am surprised to see how far south it has gone since I went away.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
