Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 29, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Oct 29, 1887 A beautiful, mild day although there was a dense mist this morning. Tom has got all the roots in, 48 Bush. carrots, 112 Bush beets, 16 Bush of turnips. This morning I set him at cleaning out the carriage house and washing the wagons & sleighs to be ready for the sale on Tuesday. Every day some one comes to see about, the cows, or a wagon or the fodder so I think the sale is pretty well advertised.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
