Jervis McEntee Diaries
Tuesday June 14, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 14, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, June 14, 1881 Rain again. I want to paint a morning sketch of the house but the sun has not shone for more than a week in the morning. Wrote an account of my Kaatskill trip which I may send to the Tribune. A letter from Weir telling me had and his wife sail for Europe tomorrow. This is a surprise to me. Mary told me today that Calvert had had a legacy of about $3000 from England. We have had violent thunder showers but in the afternoon it cleared and we had a magnificent double rainbow and fine storm effects. Sara and Marion went to Tivoli to attend the commencement at Janets school.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
