Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 10, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, July 10, 1888 Went down town and then over to Chester St to see how the grading is progressing. Girard advises that we cut off the angle in Chester St where our property joins [Wolfas?], the street being ten feet wider over our property than the rest of it. Went up to the City hall to see Mr. Sears the engineer but could not find him. Am doubtful whether it is desirable and it will have to go before the Common Council to make it legal. Our grass is not cut yet. Carroll to whom I sold it said he was promised it would be cut today but it is not. I begin to fear it wont be cut at all. Have written Church I will come up for a day whenever he wishes me to.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
