Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 5, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, July 5, 1887 I had a kind letter from Booth today and answered it at once. I have been extremely weak. It is a showery day. Tom got the celery plants of Mr. Tomkins and has set them out. Calvert John and I took my fathers will to the Surrogate and had an interview with him. We signed a petition, the usual formality to qualify as executors. Now he is to send a copy of the will to each heir and a request for them to sign giving consent to our acting under the provisions of the will and nothing more can be done until they are heard from. If there is no objection it will be a simple matter.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
