Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 3, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Mar 3, 1890 Cold weather. There was a snow storm in N. Y. last night enough to make sleighing for a short time. The fence on the lower end of Marys lot at the chimney was blown down and I set Tom to putting it up and helped him a little, but I am of little use at any manual labor now. I went down town and did some errands and pottered about at various things in the afternoon among others, sowed some garden seeds in a small box for some early plants. Mrs. Forsyth called and informed us of the meeting of our question Society's meeting at their house this evening. Sara and I went with Cantine & Miss Sheffield and had an enjoyable evening although we were able to take only a small part in the discussion, the subject being Gustavus Adolphus. The society is to meet at our house the next time the 18th and the subject is Nathaniel Hawthorne.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
