Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 4, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Mar 4, 1886 Had my breakfast in my room and left for Boston on the 8 o'clock train by Shore road arriving there at 3. Went directly to College Hill. Found Mr & Mrs Sawyer well, Mrs Sawyer much better than I expected to see her. Mr. Sawyer looks old but is active and well. All were glad to see me as I have not been there in four years and first saw Alices Tommy now. I occupied the room dear Gertrude and I occupied the last time she was home and a thousand sweet recollections of her came to me there as well as the remembrance of her suffering and weakness and the shock of first comprehending how ill she was. The weather cold and windy.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
