Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday April 14, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 14, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Apr 14, 1881 Wrote to Mrs. Weir that I could not come up on Saturday. Painted on my "Scribners pasture". Mrs. Gifford called to see me and Mary came in while she was here. Eastman and Launt Thompson happened in while they were here. Mr. Kauffman called in the forenoon to ask me if I thought Gifford had left any notes concerning the Parthenon which would be interesting to go into the catalogue of the Corcoran Art Gallery. The Union League Club had their first monthly meeting in their new club house this evening. I was invited to send a picture but I have not cared to show my pictures there since they treated me so cavalierly. Went around to the Century after dinner but it was rather triste there.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
