Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 6, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, May 6, 1889 Yesterday was very warm as today has been. Sara and I went up to Hudson by the noon train and attended old Mr. Giffords funeral. Mary had written me of his death. We staid to dinner at Marys special request and came home by the 7 oclock train. Robt. Wilkinson told me Mary would live with them henceforth. She took us up in Sanfords studio [?] there my mind was filled with memories of [?] past and of the friends who are no more. [?] henceforth not to give way to melancholy, [?] so many losses and sacrifices.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
