Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 18, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Sept 18, 1889 It has rained most of the day but cleared toward evening. I went to Kingston with all the data for making out the deeds etc. Mr. Kenyon got the proper blanks for me and instructed me how to fill them out and I came home and went at it and have them all done. A telegram from Eastman came while I was in Kingston saying he would come tomorrow by the 9.55 train. The telegram was dated the 18th. Just after we had finished our dinner a cab drove up bringing him. He said he sent the telegram yesterday and yet he arrived here nearly as soon as that did. We have finally decided to go to the Maine woods Oct. 1. We both have fears of not being ready but we will make our arrangements for that time. He is to return by the early train tomorrow.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
