Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, January 28, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Jan 28, 1874- A rainy day. The weather is as fickle as it can be. Have felt very badly all day. After breakfast went up to Eastmans to see him on perspective and after I got back worked a little. Mrs. Stone took her picture today. I did not see her. I believe it is to be given to Col. Hay for a wedding present. He is to be married in Cleveland. Fitch, Hall, Gifford and I dined in Fitch's room after which I came to my room and wrote to Gertrude. Guy came in today. My little figure was on the easel. He looked at it but made no remark. J. G. Brown came in and was apparently interested in it and spoke very pleasantly of it. Perhaps Guy didn't know I did it, or perhaps it didn't please him. I don't think he ever does such things maliciously.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
