Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday April 9, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 9, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Apr 9, 1881 Met Gordon, Huntington and E. Johnson at the Gifford gallery to select a picture for the Century. Have concluded to buy the smaller Parthenon (18x32) if we can at private sale. Johnson came to my studio with me and Jim Warren & Fuller came in. After my lunch went and called on Launt Thompson. He looks as he used to only his complexion not so good. Thought I looked boyish and younger than ever. He feels sad and once I was overcome talking of the changes. I am going home by the 4 oclock train. This notice which I cut from the Tribune in March relates to pretty Leslie Oliver whom we used to see at her fathers home in Brooklyn when dear Gertrude used to sing in Mr. Longfellows church twenty years ago. Went home by 4 oclock train.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
