Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, September 17, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Sept 17, 1873- Returned from Churchs today, leaving Gertrude to go home with Mary Gifford to remain until Saturday. Had a very pleasant visit at Churchs and most delightful weather. I made a few sketches. Lockwood De Forest was there. Church has a very lame wrist which I think is very serious and I think he is troubled about. He has on his easel a large picture of ruins, nearly completed for a Mr. Joy of Chicago. As soon as I reached home commenced getting ready to go out to join Whittredge at Deans Corners. Found a letter here from him in which he expresses fear that I may not like it out there. Wrote to Gertrude and to Vaux.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
