Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 16, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, May 16, 1881 We had more rain in the night which was greatly needed. I went down town directly after breakfast to attend to several things, get my hair cut among others. John McEntee & I went on board the Powell with Jansen to see the improvements and changes. Jansen is inclined to show better taste in her fittings than is customary on steam boats. His man drove me to the Point to get some cigars, then to Girards office and I came down with the noon train. Mr. Taylor was on the ferry boat with his mother and his grandmother. There were four generations in his house. It rained all the way down. Found a letter from Maurice quite serious and sensible in tone.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
