Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 13, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Dec 13, 1889 On my way from breakfast stopped in at O'Neils and bought a present for Marion and at Sterns a dress for Katie at home. These great stores are very interesting to me with their immense stocks of goods. It has been a very beautiful day the mercury at 70 Downing said. After dinner I went around to the club and finished the letter to Lucy which I began at home and afterwards talked with [?], McDonough and Van Derlip and walked home with Dr. Parker who has taken a furnished house on 11 St. having sold the house he built in 18th St. for $80,000.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
