Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 2, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, May 2, 1888 It is cold this morning and I have put on my winter clothing again. I found here last night a letter from Lucy, one from Mrs. Groshon acknowledging the sweet Peas I sent her, one from Mrs. Darley, one from Weir in relation to seconding Robt. Wilkinson for the Century. When I went over to breakfast Marion told me Laura and Charlie who have been at Julia's in Baltimore were at Bishop Putnams at Rye and would probably be in town today. I do not want to see them, not that I do not feel perfectly kindly to Charlie, but I confess my affection for Laura is not what it once was and it would only be painful to see them. Laura however, I think is bound to insist upon meeting us. I am prepared to have her father come on when Charlie goes back and I cant help looking forward to a most disagreeable meeting at Rondout, to which and I believe Joe has planned this visit with his usual persistence in a [wrong?] policy. I dined at the Century and spent part of the evening there after having called at Fred Nortons where I saw him and Annie and Mrs. Curtis. I began a letter to Lucy, answered Mrs. Groshons note and Weirs also.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
