Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 5, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Sept 5, 1880 Sara, Jamie and I went over to the cemetery after breakfast to see the stone and to put some flowers on dear Gertrudes grave. From there Jamie and I went down to the creek across the Commons to give Park a swim. It was intensely hot and has been a very warm day. Have written to Pell from whom I had a letter on Tuesday, to Mary and to Lucy. It seems so pleasant to have Sara home again. Fletcher Broadhead died today and Harrey Otis was buried.
