Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 27, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, July 27, 1888 It rained a little in the night and this forenoon. I went downtown after breakfast. Girard told me that Austin Thompson had spoken to him about a lot on Chester St. and said he would go and look at it. He also said that Hauck had told him he would give ten dollars a foot [for?] 100 ft. of the side hill opposite his brewery. My father considered it worth [?] pr foot and besides there is no telling what he might use it for which would damage our property here on the hill. Girard spoke to John McEntee about it and he felt that while we ought to sell he would not say [it?] was wise to accept this offer. I have felt very dizzy and badly today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
