Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 8, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Aug 8, 1889 Fine weather but not so brilliant as yesterday. I went down to see John McEntee to tell him what we have done. He was going to Athens by the 11 o'clock train and urged me to go along which I did. It was a beautiful day, the river was very pretty and I enjoyed our outing. We had dinner at the hotel at Athens and got back home about 3.30. Girard told me this morning that Capt. Van [Keusen?] told him yesterday he would take one of the two lots on Chester St. He wants the one next to the Baker lot but his wife wants one next Wood and he is to see her on Sunday in Arkville and let Girard know on Monday.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
