Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday April 22, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 22, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Apr 22, 1881 Came to N. Y. by morning train. Met Fitch and Thompson at the studio door and went to a German place to lunch with them. I am afraid Thompson is being led away by his old habits. He was nervous and excited and drank three glasses of beer. I dont see how any one can work who does such things and I am afraid he will not get to work. He is too easily led away I am afraid. He has flattening prospects for work and I hope he will improve them but I fear he will waste his time. Mary called with Miss Kemble & her sister Mrs. Bolles. Prof. Weir called. Went to the club a little while in the evening.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
