Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 28, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Sept 28, 1889 Fine, cool day. Down town. Went to see Tom Tremper to apologise for having forgotten the soldiers monument meeting on Friday. There is to be another meeting next Friday but I will not be here. Woolsey did not get his petition for his grade on Chestnut St before the Council. Crosby and others as well as myself do not think it a good grade. The Council voted for a [sewer?] in Holmes St. and there is more taxation for us. I have been arranging for leaving early Monday morning. Sara went to High Falls with John today to return tomorrow. She had a letter from Janette. They cannot come to visit her which we both regret. I wrote this evening to Mrs. von [Glimmer?]. There was a new moon this evening so we will have moonlight in the woods. We finished the lounge today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
