Jervis McEntee Diaries
Tuesday March 9, 1875
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, March 9, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
I went home on Saturday to bring Gertrude down. Sunday we had a snow storm which lasted through the night and proved to be one of the most violent of the season, the wind blowing and the snow drifting so that we did not dare venture to return on Monday. The snow was quite 3 feet deep and all trains were delayed. I never saw so much snow there at once. We came down this morning arriving here at 1 oclock to find plenty of snow here and the streets in a terrible condition. Replied to Mrs. Holts invitation at once and received an answer that she would expect us to dine with them tomorrow at 6.30. Had a row about my trunks not being delivered at my room. It resulted in substantially submitting to the dictation of the Express Co. Attended a supper at Beards studio given by Mr. Stafford of Chicago where I met eleven of the lending artists. We agreed to give our confidence to Mr. Stafford and to send pictures to the Exposition under his charge.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
