Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, May 13, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, May 13, 1873- Dr. Pelton who has been ill called and also Mr. Wooley who was a school companion of mine 30 years ago, a middle aged man, whose hair was sprinkled with grey and bearing marks of an active business life that had not left much time for cultivation. The last time I saw him he was an active boy of sixteen or thereabouts. A Mr. Max Weyl came from Washington with a letter from Mr. Kauffman. He is in business there but paints landscapes and intends to become a professional artist. He was a shy, awkward man, a German I should say, but he was very observant and struck me as a man of much natural intelligence. I went to several of the studios with him. In the evening we went to Nett. Sterlings farewell concert which was well attended by an appreciative and intelligent audience.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
