Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 1, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Feb 1, 1881 It has been a wild day, a snow storm with a high wind from N. W. I went up to 68th St. to call on Col. Sanford but he was not in. I walked down as far as 50th St to see the Vanderbilt and other new houses in Fifth Avenue and came back by the 6th Av elevated road. Have painted all day on my Academy picture and I think improved it. There was a meeting of the Artists in Woods room at which it was voted to hold a reception here on Saturday Feb. 26 in the afternoon. I dread this very much and yet I could not but acquiesce. Called on Mrs. Gifford this evening. Mary went home yesterday. It is a wild night and I pity sailors coming on the coast.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
