The Jervis McEntee Diaries - October 25, 1883

Diary Entry:

Thursday, Oct 25, 1883 Painted all day on my picture but so far I do not get the expression of my study, but I hope to. It has been a pleasant day but cool. The carpenters finished the wood house and are shingling another institution. They have the old shingles all off and it is raining now. Had a notice from the Detroit Exhibition that my picture of Mt. Katahdin is sold for Catalogue price which was either 400 or $450. It was bought by a Miss Godfrey. Wrote to Miss Nesmith two days ago and sent it today. Wrote to Calvert, to Julia Dillon, to Grady & McKersen who sent my Mt. McGregor picture to Atlanta without my permission. Unfortunately it was there last year. I also wrote to Mr. Broadley of Atlanta in charge of the exhibition.
