The Jervis McEntee Diaries - April 3, 1885

Diary Entry:

Friday, Apr 3, 1885 A decidedly spring like day. Went to the dentists who discovered a serious hidden decay in one of my teeth and since he worked at it it has troubled me greatly. Varnishing day at the Academy. Went there from the dentists. I think it an interesting exhibition. Inness' sunset hangs in the place of honor in the big room. I do not like it although several artists have spoken in great admiration of it. My "Sundown-Winter" is on the South room on the South wall in an excellent place and looked as well as it did in my studio. My remaining picture "Christmas Eve" is in the North room on the North Wall and is seen from the head of the stairs. I am entirely satisfied as far as position goes. Eastman Johnsons fine portrait of Evarts is in the center at the West end of the South room. My tooth began to trouble me during the Afternoon. I spent the evening at Marys reading Mrs. Custers book and left a little after 10 for my room with my tooth very painful and giving signs of ulceration at the root.
