Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday May 1, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 1, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, May 1, 1889 I went over to Marys to breakfast and found that Calvert and Marion were going to see the [Civic?] parade which closes the Centennial exercises and that Calvert had a ticket for me. We had a most advantageous position on the Park boards stand in Washington Square directly facing 5th Av. and saw the whole parade lasting from 10 oclock until nearly 4. I shall attempt no description except that the whole three days have impressed me deeply as the most wonderful spectacle I ever saw. The papers have excellent reports of the whole thing and I shall try to keep them.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
