Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday June 3, 1887
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 3, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, June 3, 1887 Cool with showers and fine skies. I think I have more command of my limbs today. A most kind and sympathetic letter came from Booth fulfilling my ideal of a tried and sincere friend. Also a letter from Mary Gifford saying she would come down tomorrow and dine with us. I telegraphed her we would be glad to see her and to let me know by what train. The Dr. came this afternoon. He thinks I am decidedly improved but I think he feels it will be some time before I am sound again if ever. I do think I have been better able to get about today. Booths letter was a great comfort to me and I wish he could know how I appreciate his friendship.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
