Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday March 20, 1887
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 20, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Mar 20, 1887 Went home by the 9.55 train--a mild pleasant day, the river open to Pokeepsie but firmly closed above. Tom met me with the wagon the sleighing having ended on Wednesday and he informed of the birth of a calf of the little black & white cow on Thursday. Found Sara alone, Mrs. Susan who came on Tuesday having gone to N. Y. yesterday. My father as well as usual. We had his 87th birth day dinner today and invited Girard and all his family to eat a 16 pound turkey. My father did not come down. It was sunny and pleasant and the blue-birds and robins singing all about. Tom has his hot bed going.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
