Jervis McEntee Diaries
Tuesday December 27, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 27, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Dec 27, 1881 Rainy and dark, yet I painted nearly all day. Went to see Chanfrau in the evening at the 14th St. Theatre, as "Kit the Arkansas Traveller" The play was rather loud and strong still it amused me, notably the two old "beats" the "Major" and the "Judge". Went to the club after the play. Saw Charlie Weir who has just come from Lake Superior.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
