Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday September 11, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 11, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Sept 11, 1889 The wind has blown a gale all day from the N. E. and it has been dark and gloomy with occasional spits of rain. I went down town and found a letter from Royal Reed. He is ready to go with me and says if anything should prevent him he has two smart boys who are guides. I wrote him that about the 15th I would be able to let him know whether I would go or not. That the probabilities were that I would and that Johnson would come with me and if so we would want him and one of his sons and possibly both of them. I have also written Johnson about Royals letter and telling him I would probably know in a week whether I could go or not when I would write him. Have been writing instructions for the Auctioneer and getting every thing in readiness that I can for the sale. I had a letter from Janette still hopeful about their English estates. Calvert is about well and expects to go home on Friday evening.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
