Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 15, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Mar 15, 1881 Commenced a little picture from a sketch I gave Mary long ago but some how it is not very promising. I wish I could get to work on something interesting. Called on Fred Sawyer and his wife. When I came to my room met Whittredge in the janitors room. He came to my room and sat until midnight and we talked, or rather he did, for Whittredge generally does the talking. Told me of some of his worries of house keeping in Summit and of a dishonest servant. We all have our worries and anxieties. Had a letter from Weir and answered it. I also wrote to Hasland an old school mate at Clinton from whom I had a letter a fortnight ago.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
