Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Saturday, July 12, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, July 12, 1873- I made a sketch of twilight this forenoon which is pretty bad. What few ideas I used to have seem to have vanished. I wrote to Menger this afternoon to send my "Sea from Shore" to Louisville and the "November" and the "Kaatskill Woods" to Cincinnati. I also wrote to Mr. Storer of Cincinnati that I had ordered the pictures sent and named the price of each $1250. I wrote also to Mrs. Maginness of the Louisville Exposition giving the price of the "Sea from Shore" $1250. I recevied a telegram from Gifford this afternoon saying he had just arrived at home and found my note and that he could not come on Monday. Bowyer and Fred Stedman came home this afternoon having had a very successful trip among the mountains. I received a letter from Gertrude who had arrived safely at her Father's. Mary and Calvert came up on the Powell this evening. I went down and brought them up. The weather continues perfect. I am not accomplishing much but I wait until the season is more advanced. The landscape is beautiful now but it does not suggest pictures to me as it does later.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
