Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday March 4, 1875
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, March 4, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
The storm had cleared this morning and I walked up 6th Avenue to 34th St. The snow was melting. On my way down made some purchases and when I got back to my studio found Sara here to meet Mrs. Pychouska, Edith, [?] & Mary Gifford who soon came. I had a bottle of Rhine wine for them and a little bouquet of violets. After a nice visit during which I showed them all my pictures they went back to Hoboken Mary Gifford and Sara going with them to pass the night. Painted on the two little pictures I sold Moore. Mr. Hedian called and looked at my pictures. He is coming on again soon he told me. I think he would have bought a small Autumn picture if had had one. He asked the price of my large one and I named $1500. Dined with Gifford, Hall, Fitch, Terry & Lawrence at the Arlington and from there went to the Club where I read and looked over the Art Journals and wrote a letter to Gertrude.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
