Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday June 18, 1887
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 18, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, June 18, 1887 Trials seem to come in a crowd. Jamie Andrews feared he was afflicted with Hernia and has consulted Dr. Smith. He does not give a decided answer but told him he feared it might prove to be that. I have written Dr. Patchin & Taylor asking to have them examine him, he to go down some day next week. I also received a letter from Mr. Geo. H. Wells and one from Bowyer. It is a grey day. I do not feel much better but try the think I am a little improved. Sara did not get home until near midnight last night and I waited up for her, and consequently got less than my usual amount of sleep, as there is no sleep after 5 oclock from the din of whistles, & bells in all directions. I wrote to Drs. Patchin & Taylor for an appointment for an examination of Jamie.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
