Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 18, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Dec 18, 1889 Still thawing. Rain in the night. Girard brought up Mrs. Jones bond & mortgage and I sent them to Kenyon & Sharpe. Wrote to Gill the Post Master about a free delivery which Cantine and I had discovered. Sara came home at 1 oclock. I came away by 4:05 train to attend meeting of A.M.A. Society this evening. Rained hard on the way and is now rainy and disagreeable. Had the meeting at Woods room. Only 11 present. Nicoll read his constitution for a new Society on a business basis for mere insurance. Whittredge and I spoke for the idea of the old Society, the social, fraternal idea irrespective of the mere insurance which after all seemed most attractive to all present. We discussed the plan of selling the contributions to some dealer as a whole and adjourned subject to call early in January. The feeling being in favor of going on if possible in the old way. Then I went out and got some supper.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
