Jervis McEntee Diaries: October 25, 1878

Have busied myself most of the day repairing Parks house and helping to get up the hall stove in which fire was started this afternoon. I picked morning glories and a rose and sweet peas this morning. I had a letter from Mary Gifford today full of tenderness and sadness and another from Booth full of solicitude and affection, also a business letter from St. Louis regarding my pictures there. I feel so much happier to keep employed, but there come moments when all work seems vain and I give myself up to sorrow.
