Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 19, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Mar 19, 1881 Varnishing day at the Academy. Went up for a while. Rained when I came away. Very many new faces and very few old ones among the Artists. Weir came into Giffords room where I was helping to name his pictures. Went home by 4 o'clock train. Weir rode up to the depot on his way home. Rained hard and no one to meet me. Rode up in the street car. Cousin Rachel was there. Has sold her house.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
