Jervis McEntee Diaries
Tuesday June 10, 1890
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 10, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, June 10, 1890 Uncomfortably cold this morning. I wrote Laura it would be equally convenient to have them come Saturday--that Sara was still absent but I hoped she would return before then. I felt very badly and very discouraged and depressed. I am doing nothing and feel unable physically to do any thing. A feeling of wearing out time is one which an intelligent being should never experience. When I came back from the P.O. Mrs. Weld, Mary and I walked over to the cemetery. The grass on our lots remains uncut and gives it a neglected look. We took a ride at 4 o'clock going up to Eddysville crossing the bridge and coming home by Port Ewen and Sleights ferry. We arrived home about 6.30. Sara came about 7 from Clermont having brought some servant from there to the industrial home. She had also been to see John. She gave favorable reports of Nannie but she is very silent and does not talk unless spoken to. I do not feel sure she will remain there.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
