Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 19, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, June 19, 1889 Cool and comfortable. Two loads of hay were drawn in and Tom is cutting down towards the gate. I went down town and got a note from Mary telling me of the burning of Huylers Candy factory near them yesterday.

Went over to my studio this afternoon and made a little sketch.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
