Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 21, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Oct 21, 1888 Cold with a strong N. W. wind and brilliant effects. The color is at its best but today has stripped off many of the leaves. We built a fire in the sitting room instead of the parlor this morning. I have been busy writing up my accounts and putting my clothes in order and getting rid of papers and letters which have accumulated. Sara and I dined at John McEntees with him and Julia, and after dinner he and I drove out on the Saugerties road as far as Deacon Osterhondts old place. It was cold and windy and I am afraid it will freeze tonight. I am getting anxious about our apples. When we came home just at evening we found Cantine and his wife here, come to make us a call. I have begun reading Anne [sic] Karenina this evening and am getting very interested.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
