Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday January 8, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 8, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Jan 8, 1881 Painted most of the day but have felt unhappy. Went with Downing to a museum of Chinese giants, fat women, bearded women and that sort of thing at the corner of 9th St. but soon got disgusted. Attended the Annual Meeting of the Century. The old ticket elected except Eastman Johnson on the trustees in place of Lafarge and Stedman in place of Judge Curtis. I am still continued there. I did not have a very happy evening because I felt depressed and almost wish I had gone home instead.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
