Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 6, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Sept 6, 1873- Wrote a note to Mr. Storer of Cincinnati to know if my pictures were there. I saw a notice of the opening of their exposition and the names of several artists of N.Y. were mentioned by mine was not among them. I also wrote Church that we would come on Monday or Tuesday if Gertrude was well enough. In the afternoon Bowyer and I went down to Steep Rocks and I made a sketch of an old house on the shore. Jake S[?] was [nasty?] because some one told him I had painted his wife in the picture and as she is not an [?] he fancied it was done to ridicule her. He evidently had no idea what I was about and fancied a joke at his expense under my operations. Loring Brace came today from the Adirondacs. Will Radford left by the day boat. Recieved a letter from Whittredge in which he acquiesces in my suggestions. Feels better and means to stay in that regime. Thinks he may come down to Shokan.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
