Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 19, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Nov 19, 1886 Went down town and attended to various things, among others saw Ike North and talked with him about Chester St. He finally agreed with me that I might as well go ahead and if any one raised objections then I might get a city ordinance authorising the grading. Charley McEntee left with the 12.50 train intending to stop over at Clarks mills to see Thomas. I drove him up to the station. I think he left somewhat disappointed with his matrimonial ventures. When I returned we shut up the parlor and built a fire in the sitting room as it is cold and windy and we could not keep comfortable in the big room. I have been reading Dr. Taylors book on Hernia and am greatly interested in his plan of self treatment which seems most sensible and begin at once the treatment. I wish I had known of it years ago.
