Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 31, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Oct 31, 1889 Down town. Received a letter from Eastman enclosing his account and his check in settlement of our trip. I rode up to Kingston to see Lawrence Van Elten about doing some surveying for me. He will come in about a week, when the sewers which he is superintending are laid. Walked home through the still grey air. Have been busy with plans for the alteration of the house if I buy and saw McCullogh about estimating for moving the wing of this house over on Girards lot. Wrote to Eastman that all was more than satisfactory. Also sent Eastmans check $126.35 to Bank of the Metropolis to deposit. Sent check for dues to the Players $20 also to the Century $20 and a check for $5 to the Leader to pay up to Mar 1890 and wrote Miss Brownell I would give her copy of [?] she sent me to Cantine.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
