Jervis McEntee Diaries
Monday November 21, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 21, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Nov 21, 1881 Has been cold today with a feeling of snow in the air. Went down town and then Gussie and I walked up to Kingston to do some shopping. I bought the cretonne for my bed room chairs in N.Y. and some Christmas presents. We saw the new paving in Wall St. and the Fair St. extension, both great improvements. A box came by express from Royal Reed today containing seven partridges and some beech nuts. I have written him this evening and to Mr. Gates of the hotel at Mattewamkeag to ask him for the recipe for his pumpkin pie. No news from Julia Vaux. I am afraid she has typhoid fever. A full force of men on the new barn today and a part of the frame is up.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
