Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday August 10, 1879
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Sunday, August 10, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
A most charming day, still, cool and sober. I think I never saw the river so beautiful. I went over to my studio after breakfast and finished the copy of the picture of Emma French which I intend for her. My studio is delightful. I never had so good a place to paint nor so good a light. Wrote to Gussie, to Rev. Austin Craig, Adelaide Churchills husband and to Rose Durfee. Mrs. Wellington sent me her blank verse translations of Andersens Non Pictures to look over to see if I thought they could be illustrated. I read them this afternoon and wrote her a note and also acknowledged the sonnet she wrote on dear Gertrude last fall.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
