The Jervis McEntee Diaries - February 15, 1881

Diary Entry:

Tuesday, Feb 15, 1881 Bunner called and in discussing the selling of pictures he told me of an arrangement he had made with Richardt and thought I could do something with him. We went together to see him but he was out and we are to go again tomorrow. Swain Gifford called to see about sending a picture to the Royal Academy. Wilcox of Philadelphia called. He asked about dear Gertrude and was shocked when I told him she was no more. He had never heard of her death. It gave me a great shock too, to know how little we know of each others sorrows. Averys daughter was married this evening. I would have gone but Mary with whom I was to go went to Rondout today with Cornelia Ellis who has just left the hospital and as I was not well I did not feel equal to going alone. I went up and spent the evening with Eastman Johnson to talk with him about his sister Hatties death. I am not feeling well.
