Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 5, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Sept 5, 1888 Like an October day with a N. wind. I put in two panes of glass in the stable which some boys had broken. Wrote to Genl. Husted to let [?] know when the Autumn color comes at Bisbee Lake where I am to go paint a picture of his cottage for him. I also wrote to Calvert to find out why he has not sent me back the deed of Eunists lot which I sent to him to sign ten days ago. After dinner I went down town. Mrs. Cantine who returned from Nantucket last evening called. Have been reading in the life of Scott which I find very interesting. He had the sense to keep out of quarrels with his literary companions and was a man of kindly disposition and apparently with little vanity in spite of his remarkable success. A postal card came from Alice telling us of Saras arrival there on Monday evening about 7 o'clock.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
