Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, November 28, 1876, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Mrs. Pychouska & her daughter called with a Mr. Dodd who means to buy one of my pictures. Unfortunately I had an appointment with Booth and he came while they were here. He is coming again however. Booth sat to me and I completed the head which I and he both think is greatly improved. He is very much pleased and I feel better. I painted in the hands but did not get the left one very good. Am going home tomorrow morning to stay until Monday. He wants me to take the picture up to show Gertrude.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
