Jervis McEntee Diaries
Monday January 3, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 3, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Jan 3, 1881 Oscar and I came down by noon train. Came over the river on the little tug on which must have been a hundred people. The ice was very thick and the ferry boat was going to lay up as the ice is strong enough to cross on. The train was late and I did not get to my room until 5 oclock. Cards from the Marquands to Mr & Mrs Jervis McEntee and a letter from Mr. Kauffman sending his regards to Mrs McEntee. How these things jar upon me. How little the people who know us know of our lives. Went to Geo. Stevens this morning before I left and bought a couple of little Wedgewood things which belonged to Mrs. Quilliard and which Victor is selling with other things of hers. Attended a council meeting. The weather a little warmer but good sleighing in the city. A letter from Booth. John Pope the artist was buried today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
