Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 31, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Aug 31, 1886 It has rained gently a part of the day and been grey and foggy all day. Mary went home for the season in the 11.30 train. Jamie took her and her trunks up. We all regretted her leaving for she is always a happy influence wherever she is. I took her boxes of jelly etc. down to the Baldwin in the rain. I did not go to see Sam today is it was rainy and I did not wish to appear to eager. I have been reading over my diary of 1876 & 7. I was never [?] depressed and despondent and never more troubled over our affairs and yet I made a larger income in 1877 than I ever did before or since. But I was ten years younger then. Still it gave me a more hopeful feeling and I have felt better for the retrospect. We are thinking of going to High Falls tomorrow, Andrews, Lucy Sara and I.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
