Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday March 13, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 13, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Mar 13, 1881 The suns effect this morning was very beautiful. I found a letter from Booth dated March 1 in which he tells me the doctor has told him his wife has but a few months to live. His letter gave me a vivid picture of the worries and anxieties by which he is surrounded. I write him a long letter and tried my best to encourage him. I pity him for I know better than most of his friends what he has patiently borne. I also wrote to Janette. Sara and I called at John McEntees. Saw John, Lily and Aunt Christina but Nannie was not well. Alvin Tremper died last week and he is to be buried tommorow. Justin came up to our home too later.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
