Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 15, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, May 15, 1889 Sara, Mary and I went up to Churches by the 11 o'clock train. Michael met us at the station. We stopped at the Hoysradts to inquire about little Gertrude who has scarlet fever. The servant said she was getting well. It was a delicious day with perfect temperature and the country was as beautiful as one could wish. I never saw Churches place look finer. We found him and Mrs Church pretty well but he had not been so well since his return. Had begun work on his studio which adds to the appearance of his house making it look much larger and the composition [better?]. Louis is at home. We had dinner and in the afternoon a ride about the place and after that they all took a rest except Louis and I who had a long walk.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
