Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 22, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Mar 22, 1886 It rained during the evening but snowed a little in the night and the landscape was very Novemberish this morning. I feel so much improved that I came back to New York in the noon train. Saw no ice in the river and vessels here and there. The City of Kingston came up to Rondout on Saturday and is to begin her regular trips this evening. It is cold and cheerless and I feel a little homesick and wish I could stay at home and do many things I would like to do there. Mrs. Custer who is going or has gone on a trip to Mexico has sent me two tickets to the 19th Century Club for Tuesday evening. I wrote her a note and finished Nett Sterlings letter and will mail it tonight. After dinner called at the Platts. Dick was going to Dakota tonight. The weather is cold and cloudy. I am not well but am feeling better than last week.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
