Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, February 4, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Mr & Mrs. Dod and a young lady came at 2 oclock. Mrs Dod liked the picture and he told me to send it over to his house at such a price as I chose to put on it, which was the act of a gentleman and which I will show him I hold in high respect. Went to the dinner of the "G. B. Club" at "Lighortners". Present McDonough, Whittredge, Collins, Robt. Gordon, Lord Prof. Newberry, Dr. Potter of Grace Church, Dr. Noyes, Judge Sedgwick, Dr Otis, Mr. Pellew, Mr. Washon had an excellent dinner. I was introduced to Dr. Potter who seems a pleasant genial man.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
