Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 8, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Oct 8, 1880 Breakfasted at Marys after sleeping at my room which seemed doubly lonely. After breakfast took the 23 sketches to Wilmurts to be framed and then went down town to Mengers to see about other pictures and how he was getting on. Fitch and I lunched in my room and I came home by 4 o'clock train. Old Major Mapes was here yesterday and Pa rode about with him to show him the changes that had taken place here since he went away more than 30 years ago.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
