Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 20, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, June 20, 1886 I awoke ill and with a head ache the result of a little cold and my late supper last night. I could eat but little breakfast and felt very badly until noon when I got over it by the help of two or three doses of Aconite which Sara gave me. The autumnal weather continues. We have really had no hot weather yet and tomorrow is midsummer. Mary told me this morning that this was Gussies birthday. My father came down and spent the afternoon although it was uncomfortably cool in the shade. While we were at tea Miss Noxon and Mrs. Butler came. They had been out to Mt. Pleasant to engage board for the summer. Sara and I drove them up to the 640 train as they were obliged to be home tomorrow. Mrs. Cantine and her little girl were here this afternoon.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
