Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 16, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Nov 16, 1881 A beautiful day. The carpenter began the frame of the new barn today and all is progressing favorably. Victor Quilliard came over after dinner to have me go to the cemetery to see our lot which he had finished grading and had got ready for the grass seed. I was just on the point of going over and Gussie and I walked over there. It is nicely and satisfactorily done and my father has permitted them to cut sod in one of the back fields to sod the border, and that will be finished to my great satisfaction. Morier North died today having been ill only a short time. He was a good man and did more than his duty all through his life. I had a letter from Alice today from Laurence, and wrote to Mr. Clark of the Union Pacific R. R. acknowledging the receipt of the ten dollars I found last June in the transfer depot at Council Bluffs and also to Mr. Patterson to know if he were still in Omaha.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
