Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 13, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Feb 13, 1888 I most beautiful morning. Walked down to the mail [?] a letter from Lucy to Sara. Saw John McEntee and told him of [?] inquiring about our place. He knows this Mr. Sanderson. Says he has money and is a pleasant man. Advised me to go to see the agents again. Sara walked up with me on my way to the 11.55 train to go to Conellys. Dr. Freligh and his wife were in the train. I did not speak with them. Reached my room about 3 30 and found a letter from Lucy who is still in Salt Lake with John or was on the 5th but hoped soon to go back to Bridger. Godkin was on the ferry boat and sat beside me in the street car. He did not seem to care to remember me and I was equally indifferent. I suppose I ought to have coddled him and fished for a notice of my sale in the Post. There was an allusion to my sale in the Tribune yesterday. I called at Eastmans and staid until midnight.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
