The Jervis McEntee Diaries - January 31, 1885

Diary Entry:

Saturday, Jan 31, 1885 My picture looks finely to me today and I went at it again refining and touching here and there. While I was at work on it Eastman came in--said he had come down on purpose to see me. He was much struck with the picture and said I had never done any thing finer. This encourages me greatly. He says I will be sure to sell it. Showed him all my pictures. He also liked the Twilight and thinks I am doing excellent work. He stayed a long time and we had a good old fashioned talk. Mary came over and I showed her all my pictures and she too was most encouraging in the way they impressed her. Went home by 4 oclock train as usual. Excellent sleighing up there and cold enough to be agreeable. My father looking and feeling well.
