Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 26, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Apr 26, 1888 I went down to Staten Island to visit Mrs. Lord on the 5.30 boat. I was to have met Mr. McNamer[?] her daughters husband but he was detained in town. However Mrs. McNamer herself was on board but did not see me until we landed. Her carriage was there and we drove to their house a mile and a half distant, her Aunt Mrs. Root being with her. The house is a very tasteful pleasant one with a beautiful view down the bay. Mr. McNamer came by a later boat when we had dinner. There was a visitor Mrs. Massie a young Virginia widow very bright and entertaining. We talked until 11 oclock and had a most agreeable evening.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
