Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Saturday, January 24, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Jan 24, 1874- John Durand called with his father and I invited them to lunch. The old gentleman wanted to see my figures, and was very complementary in his remarks. I started for home by the 3.30 Wallkill valley train and arrived in Kingston at 8.15. It proved a very pleasant way to go. On Sunday I wrote a criticism on the management of the train in a sportive vein which is to be published in the Freeman. There were some prolonged stops which it seemed to me might be dispensed with. It grew very cold Sunday and I returned Monday on the Hudson River road. In the evening went to Mr. Cranes to call on Mrs. Sawyer and found Alice & Mr. Sawyer there. I arranged with Mrs. Sawyer and Alice to go to Rondout this week. Recd a long letter from Bayard Taylor in which he gives me a confidential relation of some of his trials. He is going to Egypt this winter. Ward & Whittredge called to talk about the Academy.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
