Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 26, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Jan 26, 1890 Breakfasted at the St. Denis and went home by the 9.55 train. Julia Wilkinson joined me at the ferry as agreed. It was a beautiful day and the ride up was very pleasant. [Broundage?] the carpenter at Girards request came to look at the wing of our house to estimate what he would move it for. He said he would move it over to the lot in the rear, without taking down chimnies, build the foundation and put the end of the old house in order for $1300 or would move it to Girards lot for $1700 which is too much. John McEntee came up and spent the evening with us.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
