Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 7, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, June 7, 1890 I had a better night but was still feverish and restless but felt better this morning. Dr Chalker was to come and see me but as he did not and I had to go down town I stopped there and he gave me some powders to take through the day. I met Julia who insisted that Mary, Mrs. Weld and I were to come and dine with her and John tomorrow. I had just bought our dinner from the butcher but have transferred it to Girard. I went on down town and took a trip to Eddysville on one of the little boats. I tried to write to Lucy yesterday but felt too ill to finish it which I did today and sent it. I received a letter from Mary Nesmith. Mary and Mrs. Weld came this evening. They intended to come by the Powell but got left and came by the West Shore road.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
