Jervis McEntee Diaries
Monday May 7, 1888
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 7, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, May 7, 1888 I spent most of the day laying down a new walk at the back of the house and was very tired when it was done. Mary went home by 4 30 train. Bowyer came up Saturday Night late and Sunday his Mother told us he was engaged to Miss Chipp sister of Lieut. Chipp who perished in the Arctic regions and daughter of Warren Chipp. He brought her down yesterday and she staid to tea. She made a very favorable impression upon all of us and I have no doubt Bowyer has made a wise choice.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
