Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 11, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, June 11, 1889 Having been unable to get any one to take our grass crop, Tom began cutting it today. I do not know how we are to get it in with no horse or wagon, and what to do with it after we get it in. We have had several hard showers during the day and the whole earth is steaming with damp. I put a new bucket in the well today which is the third [?], I think since the well was dug. I put in two new ones several years ago. I was down town nearly the whole forenoon but spent the afternoon in my studio painting with very little satisfaction. I have begun a small Autumn picture but whether I will be able to make it interesting is doubtful. Sara had a letter from Alice today whom she invited to visit us. She fears she will not be able to, and is full of anxieties and worries.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
