Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 2, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, May 2, 1889 I went down to the office of the Peter Cooper Glue factory 17 Burlingslip to order some fertilizer but they could not tell me until tomorrow whether they could furnish it. I also went to Sloans and bought the [?] for [covering?] the parlor furniture. I did many little commissions, bought a pair of pantaloons, a hat and a pair of summer shoes at Rogers Peet & Co. Sedgwick came over about 5 oclock and we went to see the 5th Av. Arch and then to dinner. Downing and I went to Tony Pastors theatre in the evening and saw a very amusing variety performance.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
