Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday August 8, 1879
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, August 8, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
A cool, lovely day. My work at the house all done and had Josephine clean out the studio after which I moved some of my things in. Henry cut out a view of the river and I am to cut two large chestnuts which will give me a fine view. Painted a sketch of the end of the porch and a bit of distance with hollyhocks in the foreground, for a back-ground for a picture. Am reading the Letters of [?] to the Marquis de Sinque. Gertrude read them a year ago and was much entertained. Have finished the first volume.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
