Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 1, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, May 1, 1890 I wrote to Fanny Reid this morning correcting the dates in my last letter, as I had got them all wrong. Mailed Lucys letter. Tom and I took off the storm windows and put them in the garret in anticipation of having to tear down or remove the carriage house. We are going to let the fire in the hall go out and I told Tom not to put on any coal this morning. The weather is not very warm and in the afternoon seems to grow cooler and promise rain. I went down town to the post office. Girard and little Girard have gone out to Ed. [Lanes?]. Today the trout season opens. I went down town after dinner to Mantustock about moving the carriage house but am to see him again. I called at the bank to see Dewey but he had gone out of town. Mantustock told me he would like a lot here on the hill and I told him he had better take one. He inquired terms etc. and I think he may take one.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
