Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday June 8, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 8, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, June 8, 1889 I cant help saying to myself tonight "another dull day is ended" No day should be dull but I have done but little this day except to lament that the years are flying and that I find myself unable to absorb myself in the duties and the work which ought to engage my attention. It rained all forenoon and did not clear until evening. Our waiter girl "Christenah" left today her month having ended. She did not suit Sara and did not seem tractable. We are glad she has gone. I had a note from Mary Gifford and a paper with this notice of her father. She is going to Hudson and wants me to come up there and says we will both go down to Church's.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
