The Jervis McEntee Diaries - May 2, 1879

Diary Entry:

Weir and I breakfasted in my studio after which he went to attend to some business and I to do the same. Mary came over to see if I were ill that I had not appeared at breakfast. Went over there to lunch. Weld, one of the Plymouth boys was there. This afternoon Weir and I went to see Wards equestrian statue of Genl. Thomas. I was thoroughly pleased with it. Not too realistic, not at all conventional, manly, noble, full of life and those undefinable qualities that satisfy the art instincts. Wood, Hall and I went to Sighortners and arranged with him for the Academy dinner. Mary went to Rondout today.
