The Jervis McEntee Diaries - August 7, 1885

Diary Entry:

Friday, Aug 7, 1885 Directly after breakfast I boxed Fullers picture and about 9 o'clock the express man called for it and took it away. After it had gone I went to work on Mrs. Warrens picture and painted all day upon it so that I feel sure now of making a good thing of it. I think I have an interesting composition and good color. What I have to do now is to refine and complete it practically as it is and I hope to finish it in a short time. Mary telegraphed me from N. Y. that she and Alice would not come home until tomorrow as they had seats to see Genl. Grants funeral procession. It has been a cool cloudy day threatening rain. I hope it will not rain tomorrow to interfere with the funeral procession. Marion and I called down at Johns and saw Lillie and Gertrude Tremper. Nannie was not well and had retired.
