Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 28, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, June 28, 1890 I slept very well last night and worked a little in the garden after breakfast when I started out to see Mrs. John Van Gaasbeck. She was not at her house but I found her over at the old place and explained to her that I wanted her children to sign the release of mortgage. She said they generally came to her house every Saturday and she will arrange to have them all there at a certain time and all sign it together. When I got home I began to feel ill and exhausted and have had to lie down at intervals through the day. The men are blasting the rock very effectually I think will be done by Monday night. Annie Norton came this forenoon and proposed for us and Julia and John to come up and spend the 4th of July with them at High Falls which invitation we gladly accepted. Sara promised the girl who has agreed to come Sunday that she can have the 4th to herself and this arrangement will just suit us. Lucys little girl has been here today. She said her mother wishes she had never left here and talks of coming back which we hope she will do. It was very warm in the afternoon.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
