Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday March 16, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 16, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Mar 16, 1881 Mr. Howells called on me. He answered my note a fortnight ago but I never received it and wrote him again yesterday which however had not reached him yet. He told me some things of Reichardt which shakes my confidence in him. He told Mr. Howells he owned my picture which I sent up there which is not so, and that he could sell it to him cheaper than he could get one from my studio. Well they are all alike. Mr. Howell took the little Kaatskill brook for $200 and bought my study on Spruce Creek with the large log and pool for $100. Charlie Osman came to see me. They are going to start for home this afternoon. Called on Mrs. Gifford this evening. Old Mr & Mrs. Gifford were there but had gone to bed.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
