Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 31, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, May 31, 1881 Went to the Strand and afterwards made a sketch from the front of the house looking over the river. This afternoon went down to the Point and gave Park a washing. Heavy thunder showers and grand effects. A letter from Booth telling me he is to sail for home June 18th and expects to return Aug 17th. Is going to bring his wife over if she lives and her parents are to stay in New York and take care of her. He and Edwina want Julia Vaux to go back with them and I have written her today advising her to go. A letter from Lucy hoping I will come. Wrote her I had finally concluded to come if they send the passes.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
