Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 10, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, July 10, 1886 It was raining this morning and continued a part of the forenoon. At noon I drove down to Ned Tomkins' and got a lot of celery plants which I set out directly after dinner. His place looked very tidy and well cared for. I wish I had to look after only what I could keep in complete order, for I love order and to have all my surroundings well kept. It has been a comfortable day. After tea I worked in the garden until dark. Tom is attending to the roots down back of Girards and getting in the hay besides. Meanwhile the weeds are growing in the garden.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
