The Jervis McEntee Diaries - December 4, 1880

Diary Entry:

Saturday, Dec 4, 1880 Began to repaint my picture of Waste Places just returned from Chicago which looked black and uninteresting when Joe Tubby came in. He staid two hours but I worked meanwhile. Julia Dillon came shortly after he went to tell me she had heard from Sara and that my picture which I gave her for her fair had been drawn by Mrs. John L. Hasbrouck. Went to the Century monthly meeting. Did not have a very good time. My picture looked very well and was pretty well liked I think, but I felt discouraged and so could not enjoy the evening. I came to my rooms about midnight feeling very forlorn and discouraged and slept but little all night.
