Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 6, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Sept 6, 1889 A letter from Eastman in which he says he would like to go up to Maine as I proposed. I wrote him from Girards office asking him to come up on the day boat for Sunday and put a quick delivery stamp on the letter. I continue to hear comments on the plan of laying out our property. Where would we have landed had we listened to the varying proposals. Sara and I went to Kingston after dinner to attend the annual meeting of the State Charities Aid but there was no quorum. Mr. Bevin was there from Marbletown, Cantine, Sara and I from Rondout and no one from Kingston except Arthur Westbrook. The sky was very threatening before we got home and shortly after we had a smart shower which was greatly needed. A telegraphic item in the Freeman this evening announces the suicide of Dr. Brown who was once in charge of Bloomingdale Asylum. A fortnight ago a scandalous sensational article concerning him appeared in the World and I have no doubt his suicide is the direct result. I shall anxiously await further particulars. Calvert I think is through the worst of his troubles provided no new boils appear.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
