Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday September 8, 1888
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 8, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Sept 8, 1888 It began to rain last evening and has rained all day. Tom and I made ready immediately after breakfast to burn out the chimnies, which we did, taking us until noon. We burned the sitting room chimney very effectually, which would not take fire two years ago. The dining room fire we could not ignite although we made three separate attempts. There seemed no soot in it. I am greatly relieved that this is done for it is a job I always dread and have to attend to personally. Very damp and warmer this evening.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
