Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 2, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, July 2, 1886 Went down town on some errands. Saw Ned Tomkins about celery plants. Recd. a note from Sam to whom I sent the interest on $200 yesterday. He said Romeyn had been up and was to furnish a design for the addition to Ulster Academy next week. Have had a little of a discouraged feeling today. I live in the hope of selling our place, and still I am prepared for disappointment. It is all so uncertain that I feel very unsettled and do nothing with any thing like satisfaction. I received from Mrs. Steele today a photograph of her sister Charlotte nee Mrs. Livingston. The sweet expression of the face was much as I remembered her. I showed it to my father and he looked at it a long time. When I went away he said to Mary "Jervis will marry Mrs. Steele" I was surprised that such a suggestion should enter his head and it amused all of us.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
