Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 3, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Nov 3, 1889 Rained nearly all day clearing late in the afternoon. Very mild temperature. I wrote to Lucy and to Calvert. Girard and the children came over in the afternoon. Sara found one of Marions wax dolls, much dilapidated, for Florence and it was amusing to see her devotion to it. John and Julia came up and spent the evening. John had had a letter from Nannie and she did not seem so greatly disappointed as we feared that it was not thought advisable for her to take a journey just yet. Henry Abbeys wife died at the Middletown Asylum on Saturday. I understand they had separated on account of some trouble. This notice of the funeral struck me as strange as not mentioning that she was the wife of Henry Abbey.
