Jervis McEntee Diaries
Tuesday June 4, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 4, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, June 4, 1889 Another rainy forenoon. Sara went to Ponkhockie on professional business and I went down town to mail my letter to Marion and a note to the Art Guild and was caught by the showers and did not get back until 12 oclock. I have spent most of the afternoon reading over my diary since my fathers death as I am going to make a condensed record of everything in connection with the estate. Some young ladies, Miss Clara Van Deusen and Miss Laster came up to see if I would allow their tennis club to occupy the ground between the carriage house and the gate. They talked with Sara but I told her I decidedly objected as we were already invaded by base ball and all sorts of encroachments. I told her to tell them I regretted that I could not oblige them but I had decided objections and had been obliged to refuse Marion the same request. The people here seem to have no idea of any respect for ones privacy.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
