Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday March 30, 1873
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 30, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, March 30, 1873- Thursday we had a reception in the afternoon and evening to which a great many people came a large proportion ladies. I don't think many who buy pictures came and I am more and more convinced that they do us no good. Friday I worked on my Arch of Nero and improved. I got a nice letter from Booth from Chicago in which he tells me he has given up the management of his theatre to his brother Junius. Eastman Johnson came and I went up to his house with him. Just after we had gone Tom Appleton came in and made a long call on Gertrude. Saturday I worked on my "Arch of Nero". It rained all day violently. Eastman Johnson and his wife dined with us. I received a letter from Bayard Taylor from Florence. They are living at the Casa Guidi where we were while we were in Florence.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
