Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 14, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Aug 14, 1886 Yesterday Andrews, Lucy, Sara and I went up to the Grand hotel by the 2.30 train by invitation of the proprietor, Joe Cornell. It was a pretty warm day but we found it very cool up there. Mrs. Cornell was there and we also met Mrs. H. K. Thurber. We had a very pleasant time, as pleasant as I could have any where, feeling as troubled and worried as I do. We returned this morning reaching home at noon. A hot wind is blowing and I return to the old wearisome and monotonous duties and anxieties.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
