Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday September 30, 1888
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 30, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Sept 30, 1888 A heavy frost last night and a cold day requiring a pretty good fire in the parlor to keep comfortable. The wood pile is rapidly disappearing and as we were not certain we were to be here this winter I did not lay in our usual supply of wood. I did not contemplate Julia being here and warming my big room by an open fire to keep the baby warm. Meanwhile we are expecting more company. It is very difficult to entertain company situated as we are. I wish we were settled and knew what we are to do. Bowyers wife is expected tomorrow and Lucy and Sedgwick on Thursday and there is no telling but Joe Tomkins and Gertrude will also stop.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
