Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 7, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Sept 7, 1889 As I supposed, the Tribune this morning confirms my suspicions that the dastardly article in the World of Aug 25 was the cause of Dr. Browns suicide. Such newspapers are a curse to the community and it is a discouraging reflection that they are demanded by the large part of the people as witness the enormous circulation of the World. Eastman did not come today, nor Downing to whom I telegraphed for his father. Calvert is improving but there are indications of further troubles. The weather is cloudy and cool.
