The Jervis McEntee Diaries - November 17, 1885

Diary Entry:

Tuesday, Nov 17, 1885 Finished the cleaning and arranging my studio and had the windows washed and now begin to feel like going to work. Called on Whittredge but he was not in. Saw Guy a few minutes and called on Casilear who has been confined to his room for some time. Miss Durfee came to see me about a proposed International exhibition at Berlin but I told her frankly I had no interest in it and at best it seemed in a very nebulous condition. She thought she might be able to sell one of my pictures from her room in the Sherwood building and I told her I would let her have one to try, but I have no great faith in it. The Art Critic of the Star Miss [blank] called to take some notes of my pictures and spoke of coming to Kingston next summer to write an article on Vanderlyn. Spent the evening at Marys and Calvert walked over with me. We are both anxious and worried over our money affairs and cant think of much else. I wrote a note to Mrs. Custer asking if she were at home and if so when it would be agreeable to have me return the book personally. Wrote to Mrs. Warren telling her I had got back to my studio and asking when it would be agreeable to have me come and see her about her picture, and to Fuller telling him I was back and would be glad to see him at his convenience. Wrote to Sara also and mailed the letter on my way to dinner.
