Jervis McEntee Diaries

Thursday September 9, 1875

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, September 9, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Painted all day but with poor result, still this experimental work is valuable. Recd. another letter from Stafford and another notice of the Exposition which opens to the public today. Yesterday was buyers day and I hope to hear that they made some liberal sales. They seem to have a fine collection and the newspapers are paying a good deal of attention to the Art department.
