Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday September 8, 1875
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, September 8, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Have painted for a day or two on the figure of Lucy I painted last fall more with a view to experimenting than any thing else. Today my father drove me to Saugerties for me to make an affidavit before a Register in Bankruptcy, to the appraisement I made of Booths engravings, etc. The weather has been cool and pleasant but very dry. The roads are like beds of ashes. Joe Tomkins left today, after we had a talk over our home affairs. Wrote to Stafford a note to Eastman enclosing Staffords letter and the extract from the Chicago paper and also to the lawyer returning the affidavit I made upon the appraisement of Booths engravings etc. Worked on the path down the hill after dinner and got very tired.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
