Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 10, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Mar 10, 1881 Went with Mary to the Cooperative Dress Association and subscribed for four shows ($100) thinking I can sell at a profit. Am troubled with an ulcerated tooth and having a bad cold am unfit for any thing. Went and saw the dentist. Attended Mr. Gordons annual Artists party this evening where the usual assemblage was brought together. A beautiful house, no end of money apparently and cordial hospitality. I wish I were in a mood to enjoy it all more than I do but my own ill success and my anxieties make me timid and disinclined to meet people. Tom Sawyer called at Marys. I had not seen him since last winter.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
