Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday May 8, 1890
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 8, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, May 8, 1890 Cool this morning but a lovely day. The landscape now in its tenderness is my despair. Down town and got a letter from Church who has got home from Mexico. Their trip owing to Mrs Churchs illness was a failure. I picked an armful of apple blossoms after breakfast for Miss [?] who was to send them down to the Methodist Church for the wedding of the Pastors daughter, Miss Lamont. Owing to neglect they did not go. The apple blossoms are not quite fully developed but nearly so. We went to the second Philharmonic Concert this afternoon and this evening. Met Miss Berth Tuckerman there. She is visiting Miss Crosby. All this music brings dear Gertrude most vividly before me. I constantly associate her with it all and can fancy her interest and pleasure in it.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
