The Jervis McEntee Diaries - March 1, 1883

Diary Entry:

Thursday, Mar 1, 1883 Painted all day on my picture with a greatly discouraged feeling. Julia and Mrs. Donaldson called. Received a letter from Gill asking if he were to send my picture to me for the Academy which in view of a letter I received from him a few days ago telling me it would be here on Friday I considered very strange. I wrote him to send it. Meeting of the Century trustees, lasting until nearly midnight. The plans of the proposed new site were considered. Newtons case was discussed and the Treasurer was instructed to call him to account for his gross irregularities in his personal account with the Club while a member of the house committee. Came to my room with a greatly depressed feeling which I am apt to have after being with all these men who seem so much more prosperous than I am. There is no mercy or sympathy for non success in these days.
