Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 31, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

If I had not been busy all day making my final arrangements to leave tomorrow I should have felt despondent I fear. It is very quiet here.

This is perhaps an extreme statement but I feel how entirely dependent I am upon my own family for companionship and my own family now means Sara.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
