Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 30, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Sept 30, 1881 The weather very hot with dry winds. I have been getting some of my things together for my trip to Maine. McGeorge was here at tea. A letter came from Downing this evening telling me that an hour and a half before Edwina had accepted him as her lover, in their parlor at the Windsor hotel. Her father was present. I was very pleased. This was not at all a surprise to me. I wrote Edwina a congratulatory letter before I went to bed.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
