Jervis McEntee Diaries
Monday April 4, 1887
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 4, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Apr 4, 1887 Another charming day. I raked the road in front of the house which is dry and the snow going rapidly although there are still deep banks of it in places. Went over to Chester St. and looked about. The men are at work and so far finding only sand to remove. I expect they will come to rock but there is less than I feared. It was so delightful up in the country I was reluctant to leave which I did by the 4 35 train. Sara and Emily drove me up to the station and went on to Kingston. The cars were over heated and I have been too warm all evening. Went to the Century and had some supper.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
