Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 6, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Dec 6, 1881 A Miss Teale of Palenville called and wished to see some of my sketches. She telegraphed to me a few days ago but not being familiar with the name I supposed it was for John McEntee. Went over to my studio with her and built a fire and she looked over my sketches. She ordered a little picture for a hundred dollars and is to come to my studio in N.Y. Painted all afternoon on the roof which was very hard work and I got very cold and tired. I have a swelled face from a boil in my nose and so feel pretty miserably. My mother, Gussie and I went down to Sampron Hall to see Janauschek in Fredericken Bremers "Mother & Son". It was excellently acted in all its parts, notably the character of Francesca by Mrs. Waldron. Janauschek is an actress of great power but there was a small audience and no enthusiasm although I think the audience was profoundly touched.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
