Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 8, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Jan 8, 1880 Moore sent me his check today and took away the pictures, and I have paid some bills. Booth came early and I tried to paint on the Benedick but the more I did the worse it got and I have abandoned it and will begin anew. I painted on the Petruchio and improved it. Got some canvases ready to work on as soon as I get these things out of the way. A Capt. Wallace formerly of the 8th Infantry called with W. H. Smith. Attended a trustees meeting of the Century.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
