Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 12, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Dec. 12, 1872- I had one of my severe head aches last night. Have been suffering all the week with a troublesome tooth which has made me half sick. Sara came over and dined with Gertrude. A Mr. Ogden called on me on Tuesday and wanted to buy a picture. He said he would send his wife to look at the one I painted for Mr. Dorman. On Wednesday Mr. Deforest called. He told me his sister-in-law wanted to buy an important picture and he would get her to come and look at my "October". I repainted the sky yesterday entirely covering the cracks and I think much improving the picture. I have been at work most of the week on the picture for Mr. Hoe which is about done. Today I began a sea picture.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
