Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 17, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Feb 17, 1881 Went to see the Water Color exhibition. In the afternoon Marion and I went to hear Franz Rummels piano recitals. He played Mozarts, Beethovens, Chopins & Liszts music and as I thought charmingly. Many of them I had heard dear Gertrude play and I thought of her all the time and regretted that I had not been able to afford her more opportunities to hear music which was such a necessity of her life. Dear loving woman! She never demanded any thing but meekly denied herself always. In the evening Calvert and I went to Booths Theatre to see Will Hopper in a "Hundred Wives". I was greatly disappointed in him. He seems to me without talent and yet the audience seemed greatly entertained.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
