Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 19, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Oct 19, 1880 Ice made last night. Worked on my picture all forenoon. This afternoon Mary, Sara, Maurice little Charlie and I took a ride out on Lucas turnpike to the Greenkill road. The color was very lovely and everything was picturesque. Dear Gertrude and I took this same ride the year she died and I thought of her all the way. I had a long letter from Henry Holt in which he spoke in a very frank and friendly manner. This evening I had a note from Wm. Bispham asking me to write a note for him as a candidate for the Century. This is a delicate matter. I dont know him at all intimately only by meeting him at Booths, but he has always struck me as an agreeable man.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
