Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday December 18, 1887
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 18, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Dec 18, 1887 It snowed all night and was still snowing this morning and as it had blown against the house and the windows it looked very wintry although it was not cold. I got some exercise shoveling the snow from the front porch. It was very cosy and pleasant at home and we staid in all day. Girard came over. Eltinge Anderson had endorsed his note after all. He told me Mr. Brandon would probably buy a lot on Chester St, and he had got Fl[?] to get a resolution passed by the common council to have the city surveyor make a profile of the grade of Chester St from Union Av. to [James?] Avenue.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
