Jervis McEntee Diaries
Monday December 15, 1879
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Sunday, December 15, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Booth came down today bringing the Hamlet and the Iago for me to make some changes in. He had only a little while to stay and I painted on the Hamlet but made it worse than before. Mr. Skinner brought me tickets for the Opera of Sonambula and Mary and I went. M[?] sang delightfully and was a good actress. I thought of dear Gertrude all the time and the lovely airs she used to sing brought tears to my eyes. I had lovely letters from Alice and from Mrs. Sawyer written some time ago which have been at Rondout. Also a letter from Janette and one from Sade with much about dear Gertrude. They all made me so long for her that I went to bed with my heart full of sorrow.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
