Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, Feb. 20, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Feb. 20, 1873- I went about and got rid of the money I received from Mr. Hurlbut. Paid my rent to Nov. 1 and a tailors bill of nearly a hundred dollars. Mr. & Mrs. Bachelder lunched with us and we asked Gifford down also. Looking at my Cape Ann picture curiously enough they spoke of having been there last summer and in speaking more particularly of it I remembered very well seeing them and produced a sketch in which I painted their carriage while they were roasting some clams at a fire. We were so near each other and yet so entirely unconscious of it. To my great surprise Joe Tomkins came in this afternoon. He is only here for a day and goes back tonight.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
