The Jervis McEntee Diaries - April 24, 1883

Diary Entry:

Tuesday, Apr 24, 1883 Went to the dentists this morning. A dark day with frequent showers. Came to my studio and painted on my evening picture. Hubbard and I went to Julian Weirs wedding at 5 o'clock at the Church corner of 10th St. Johns little daughters Edith and Louise were there. Lily looked very pretty as she walked in dressed simply in white. The brides maids in Gainsborough hats with white plumes were a very pretty feature--still a wedding seems always to me for the eyes of only very intimate friends. I find I grow less and less to like artificial ceremony. Dined with Fred Sawyer and his wife and at half past 10 came to my studio. Hannah told me Weir had just left my room and gone to the Century so I went up there and met him and after a little we came back to my room and talked until nearly 2 oclock on Spiritual things about which Weir talks well. He is very progressive and has pretty wide interests but I think he will change his mind about some things while he will continue to grow mentally and spiritually.
