Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 30, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Oct 30, 1889 Down town after breakfast. Calvert returned the deeds with his signature and wrote a brief note saying he had written John regarding my purchase of the place and he would probably see me. Waited for Girard who did not come and finally came up home where I found him in bed with a sore throat. I went to Kingston and had Kenyon make out the release and Sev. Sharpe is to send it to Booths lawyer and notify me when it is returned. I did not get home until nearly 2 oclock. It has been a brooding, grey day with indications of snow at one time. After dinner I read the Tribune and then went over to Chester St. where Miss Bakers and Mrs Gregorys houses are going up, to see if any one had been digging sand or cutting sods. I went to the cemetery to see the head stone at Maurices grave which was put up while I was gone and for which I have wholly paid. It is of blue stone and is very satisfactory. When I came home I made copies of the North and the Dewey deeds to keep. I received a note this morning, mailed last evening at Boston, from Mr. [?] L. Hubbard telling me he had sent me his guide book by mail which came this afternoon. I have written him and sent him my check for $1.25.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
