Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 25, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Aug 25, 1882 Sara, Julia Dillon, my mother and I took a nice ride up to Eddyville along the creek to see the work on the bridge for the West Shore rail road the foundation of which they are building, crossing the Eddyville bridge and down the other side of the creek to the South Rondout ferry and up Jacobs valley home. I was struck by the activity every where and I think the city must receive an impetus when the West Shore road is finished. I got a letter from Eastman in which he says he would like to go up into the Maine Woods if I will go about Oct. 1. In the afternoon I did some repairs to my sketch box. Mrs. Parsons the matron of an Industrial house took tea with us. A telegram from Weir saying they could not come this week and that he would write. A letter from Gussie.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
