Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, December 16, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Worked on the Hamlet and rubbed it all out again. I am having great trouble with it. Went to the G. B. Club dinner at the Down Town Club. Invited Charlie Coleman who went with me. From there to Mrs. M. O. Roberts party which I dreaded, but I got along with it very nicely and had a very good time having met several people whom I knew. I wrote to Mrs. Sawyer in the afternoon but I felt to unhappy I am afraid my letter will distress her. I feel so discouraged and sad that I do not know how it is to end now when so much is depending upon me and when I ought to be at work.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
