Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 14, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, June 14, 1890 Rain again today making the 4th consecutive rainy day. I went down town and did a number of errands in connection with Lauras & Gertrudes visit tonight. Have engaged Smith Bus to bring them up from the Powell. I paid my assessment for the paving of Holmes St. $246.50 but did not pay it for the estate some $700 because I have not the money. Webster told me if I paid it by July 15 he would not charge the 2 pr. ct. I may sell a lot by that time but I certainly cant be less able to pay it than I am now. I went down to see John about it yesterday but he had no advice to offer except to wait until I am obliged to pay it. I picked the first peas today from the "First of All" variety. I could have had them two or three days ago but do not care for them so young. Our servant is to stay and do the washing Monday and meanwhile Minnie has sent for some relative of hers from Whiteport to come at least until we can get some one. Laura, Gertrude and her husband Mr. Cranford came by the Powell. I had Smiths cab to bring them up. They seemed very pleased to be here and he struck me as a quiet and agreeable young man.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
