Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 4, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Nov 4, 1887 Tom wheeled the case over to the cemetery and we covered dear Gertrudes tombstone for the winter. The stone has cracked at the bottom and the fracture seems to show more & more. A beautiful Indian summer day. I went down town and found a letter from Dr. Browne wanting me to pay his bill in money instead of a picture as he requested. I wrote him I would not, but to come and see my at my studio and we would try to arrange it. Mrs. Cantine called and wanted us to escort her sister, just home from Europe, to the Republican meeting tonight which we did. Mr. Sawyer, Sara and I called for her and walked up to the Academy of Music which was filled with people. Senator Hiscock made the principal speech, but Col. Fred Grant said a few words. It was quite an enthusiastic meeting and people came in on all the rail-roads to it.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
