Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 19, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Feb 19, 1874- Gertrude and I went up to Stewarts after breakfast and bought a carpet for our dressing room. From there I went to see the water color exhibition where I spent a couple of hours very pleasantly. It is really a very interesting exhibition. Wrote a short note to Booth. Alice Sawyer and Albert Crane dined with us yesterday. Attended Mrs. Youmans party to Col. Hay and his bride. Mrs. Hay is a very fine looking woman. Had a pleasant talk with Mrs. Junius Henri Browne. Old Mr. Bryant was there. Mrs. Godwin says he is always ready to go out in the evening. Gertrude was too tired to go which I regretted as there were many inquiries about her. I discovered Mrs. Launt Thompson late in the evening in hiding behind her fan in a corner. She didn't seem to be having a good time.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
