Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 11, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, July 11, 1887 A cool, charming day. Calvert went to N. Y. Letters from Mary Gifford, Mr. Bachelder and Eastman Johnson and one from Dr. Taylor. He thinks my trouble is not central, but is inclined my anxieties have much to do with my condition and rather advises going away. I have felt perhaps a trifle better. I walked over to where they are at work on Mrs Folants house and back and seem more the worse for it. Rachel Belder (nee Carle) came this afternoon. It is rather difficult for me now to see people but I must try to be agreeable to her as she wants to help me by the Christian Science Method, in which I have not too much faith. A Mrs. Davis and her son came to see me about buying the lot next to Mrs. Folant. Several people have made inquiries of Girard of late about lots there and I hope when Mrs Folants house is built others will be inclined to come there.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
