The Jervis McEntee Diaries - December 12, 1885

Diary Entry:

Saturday, Dec 12, 1885 Cold and bright. Painted all day on my little Kellys Corner picture and have about finished it. I think there are some good qualities in it and I find I have greater facility and can produce results more easily. There was a notice of the pictures at the Union League in yesterdays Tribune and I think every artists name but mine was mentioned. I dont care only I wonder why I am never mentioned in the Tribune. The notice of these foot pads is not so much a distinction as their silence. Mrs. Conkey came with a lot of young women from Brooklyn and Mrs. Henshaw called. About noon Katy Burns, grown into a buxom young woman came from the House of Refuge in charge of a big policeman. I wrote a note to Capt. Van Kewen of the City of Kingston and he took her down there. I hope she will reach home safely, where Sara is to meet her or have some of her people there.
