The Jervis McEntee Diaries - March 28, 1885

Diary Entry:

Saturday, Mar 28, 1885 The sun is shining pleasantly today. I spent an hour looking at the pictures in the Sceney collection. The Evening Post has questioned the genuineness of some of the pictures and the American Art Association has sued them for $25,000 damages. The affair has called out a great deal of discussion and seems to advertise the collection. I was not more favorably impressed by the pictures on a second view. They do not come up to my standard and Whittredge whom I met in the street said the same. I bought a bottle of Tokay wine for my father and went down to the Fulton Market and got him some little birds and some wild pigeons to take up home. Went home by 4 o'clock train. John and Nannie went also and they rode home from the station with me. Found Mrs Davis staying with Sara.
