Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 16, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Nov. 16, 1872- Mr. Hoe came in yesterday morning and I made a trade with him giving him my picture of Venice and agreeing to paint him one like Mr. Chickering's picture for the picture of Kaatskill woods I sold him last spring and two hundred dollars. I do not furnish frames for either. I consider this a good trade for I exchange a picture I have had some time and not a saleable subject for a picture which seemed to be very popular when it was first painted. Rev. Mr. Loomis a friend of the Bachelders spent the evening with us and talked about a house he is going to build. We were civil to him and his wife a few years ago and since then he seems to have adopted us. Rouse was in today. He has just returned from London and Paris where he went in August. Whittredge gave Gertrude Leutze's portrait of me and today we brought it down to her.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
