Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 26, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Feb 26, 1881 We had our reception from 2 to 6 today. There were crowds of pleasant people who seemed to enjoy it greatly, and I met many old friends. The day was fine and the affair is considered a great success. Calvert told me this evening of the death of his mother of which he heard a few days ago. He was greatly attached to her. She was 85 or 86 years old. I went around to the Century a little while this evening and saw Bispham with whom I talked of Booth and the recent announcement that he and Irving are to play together.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
