Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 29, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Mar 29, 1886 The robins and one or two other birds, the blue birds and Phebes were singing gaily this morning on the hill, but after breakfast it grew cloudy, cold and windy and they closed their concert. I with Girards aid made some measurements to establish the location of Woods, Girards, my own, and the two concrete houses on a map Downing is copying for me and which I am going to leave in Girards office. It was cold and disagreeable. I came down in the noon train. Mrs. Osterhondt and her mother were on the train on their way to Atlantic City. It snowed a little at home this forenoon but rained when I reached New York. I mailed the letter to Mrs Steele and also dear Gertrudes photograph. Emma Brace was at dinner as well as Downing. All the young people were going out this evening. I came to my room about 9. It was raining quite hard.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
