Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday April 8, 1880
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 8, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Apr 8, 1880 Sara came down. I have been greatly depressed today. I dined with Quincy Ward yesterday at the house of his mother-in-law Mrs. Valentine. After dinner we went to his room and had a sympathetic and confidential talk, but his brother came in and interrupted what was very interesting in his experience to me. Sara and I went to see Booth in Othello this evening. He was fine but in the more passionate parts I felt a lack of physique. I like him better in less emotional parts.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
