Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, December 17, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Booth came and stood for me in Don Caesar. I do not get on well and feel discouraged. I feel that I do not draw the figure well enough and every thing is a trouble to me. I am discouraged. Went up to see Gifford. Found him too much troubled about his brother. He asked me to dine with him which I did and afterwards went to a Fraternity meeting at Mrs. Birneys where Calvert read an essay on dress. Wrote a letter to Sade.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
