Jervis McEntee Diaries
Tuesday April 19, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 19, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Apr 19, 1881 Reichardt came and selected my picture of Hussey Hill (which I painted for Mr. Chickering) to send to his gallery for sale. Commenced a small autumn picture using one of my Deans Corners studies. By appointment went over to Mr. Dods at Hoboken to lunch. George Smillie came. The views from his home in the Stevens grounds are charming. After lunch we took a walk about the Stevens house and grounds. This seems to me a princely place in its situation, such seclusion and space so near a great city and such charming views. I enjoyed my visit there greatly. The day was fine and Mr. & Mrs Dod very hospitable. In the evening called on Miss Nesmith in 72nd St. Found her looking ill and with a distressing cough. Sara told me she had consumption and this winter has been very severe on her. I felt very sorry for her. Went to the club.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
