Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 8, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, July 8, 1886 A warm night but the North wind was blowing when I awoke this morning and we have had an agreeable day. I worked in the garden for a while. We had a letter from Lucy written June 28th. They were on the eve of starting and were to be in San Francisco on Sunday July 4th. Were to stop at their new port Fort Fred Steele for a day on their way home. We will probably see them some time next week. The Detroit people (Hanna & Ives) do not take the slightest notice of my letters.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
