Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday October 23, 1886
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 23, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Oct 23, 1886 I awoke at 3 oclock with a severe head ache and could not get to sleep again. Have been miserable all day and unable to do much. Tom finished picking the apples and I put some of them in barrels. I felt better at tea time and drove up to the station for Mary & Lucy. Tom went with the buck board. They came as did Andrews and Sedgwick from Wilmington, where Sedgwick has captivated all of them and they wanted him to stay and go to school this winter which he was willing to do. John does not know where he is to be sent and is troubled about it. He thinks he will have to leave in about a week and I should not be surprised if he leaves Lucy here until he gets settled. I wrote to Eastman Johnson this forenoon. Katy [Struce?] came to see Sara and took tea with us.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
