Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, September 11, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Sept. 11, 1872- Received a letter from Mr. Dorman yesterday in which he informs me that the picture does not quite please him, which is as I expected. I wish I were independent of such men. At last I shall not paint him another. Downing and I took a walk after dinner out to the Roa-tina. In the evening Mary, Gertrude and I and John McEntee went to a party at Esther Livingstons. Today I have written to Mrs. Winter to tell her I cannot pay her some money as I expected and also to Shutt to tell him that we would start for his place on Monday by the train which reaches Kaatskill at 11.53 A.M.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
