Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 8, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Nov 8, 1889 It was raining a little this morning. Robert was obliged to go to N. Y. by an early train. We came away by the 10.40 H. R. train much to their regret. They urged us to stay longer but we had promised to be home today. I found a letter from Whittredge proposing a meeting of the A. M. A. society on Wednesday evening and have written him that I will endeavor to be present. Mrs. R[?] Fanny Stringham took tea with us. Aft she had gone Sara told me she wanted to come and board here this winter. She had not spoken to her husband but she knew he would be delighted. I told her if she wished it I would consent. They are very agreeable people and as Sara will be alone it would be a good arrangement.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
