Jervis McEntee Diaries: July 24, 1884

Thursday, July 24, 1884 Spent the forenoon working in the garden which has become very needy while Tom has been getting in the hay. Then I bathed and dressed and after dinner finished my letter to Lucy sending her a copy of my account which I have made out for each of my brothers and sisters. A letter came from Turck this evening in answer to one I wrote him for my father declining to abate any thing from the amount due on his mortgage. He wants a statement of the amount due. Mary and Sara are still in N. Y. and we hope they will come with Calvert tomorrow night. It is lonely enough here without them. I hope now Turck will pay his indebtedness and then I shall know what I am going to do. Have begun to read Trollopes "Perpetual Curate"[.]
