Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 27, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, June 27, 1889 Tom and I have been repairing the fence on the side hill this forenoon. I had dressed myself this forenoon but a violent shower came up while we were at work and made everything so wet that I was not only wet with perspiration but dirty besides so that I had to change all my clothes. I dont mind working when I am prepared for it but I hate to spoil my clothes as I did today. Sara had a letter from Laura today, very pleasant and friendly. I have sowed some radish seed and am curious to see how long it will take them to develop. I had a note from Miss Brownell today from Cambridge. She sent me Firths Autobiography which we are reading. I have been reading Saint Beuves essay on Taines English Literature and his defense of Pope. Girard paid me Mrs. Mary Bakers assessment on her lot $39.00.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
