Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 16, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Nov 16, 1888 Threatening weather with more rain in the afternoon and evening. I repainted the ridge boards of the roof which have not yet been put up and the paint not having dried which I put on them. The carpenters did not come. "The Twenty Question" club met here this evening. Dr & Mrs. Van Slyke, Mr & Mrs. John Forsyth, Kitty and Ella Forsyth, Miss Shufeldt, Mrs. Livingston, Mr. Clark, Mr. Cross, Frank Waters & Mr & Mrs Cantine. They came in a large covered wagon and it was raining. The subject was Sir Walter Scott and the subject was handled with the usual condition of such occasions. We had a pleasant evening and every one seemed to enjoy it.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
