Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 14, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Nov. 14, 1872- Weir gave a dinner in Gifford's room to Fitch, Whittredge, Hubbard, Gifford and myself after which we all except Fitch went over to Brooklyn to hear Weir's lecture on color before the Brooklyn Art Association. It has rained today and I have painted on my Pine Tree picture changing the tone of it. I had a number of callers. Mr. Noble, Weir, Whittredge and others. This evening directly after dinner I went up to see Kensett who I heard was ill. I was greatly alarmed to find he is seriously ill with pneumonia. I could not see him but was told by Hicks that he is doing well. He has Allopathic physicians but I was glad they had sent for Dr. Otis in whom I have every confidence. I could only offer my services and told them to call on me for anything I could do.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
