Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 7, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, July 7, 1890 The men came this morning and began tearing down the stable and carriage house. By the night the stable I built with so much care five or six years ago, was all down and they had begun to tear off the shingles of the carriage house. Tom is at work covering the water pipes in the ditch we made. The water does not run at all through the day but does morning and evening. Fortunately the well proves a good supply. Tom and I took some things out of the upper part of the carriage house and put them in the part I am to keep and I helped him some in covering the pipe, so that tonight I was very tired. It has been a hot day in the sunshine but comfortable in the shade.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
