Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 27, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Dec 27, 1886 It snowed again this morning but only for a short time when the weather cleared most brilliantly. I drove down town in the cutter, came back and took Sara to Kingston and returning left her at Nannies while I came up to the carriage house and had Henry fasten the sign to the posts, which Tom had brought up from the lumber yard and then they drove over to Chester St with it, I following in my sleigh. I designated the place to set it up and came back after Sara and brought her home, and immediately returned to Rondout and renewed my note at the bank for $400. I also went down to Abbeys and renewed his note by giving a new one which I signed using for the first time the Power of Attorney he gave me a few weeks ago. We had nice letters from John Weir and his wife. The box arrived on Xmas day and was evidently enjoyed by them. Lily was there having come up from N. Y. to dine with them and return the same day. The news of Genl. Logans death came this morning. Flags were at half mast when we went to Kingston and when I returned I put up ours.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
