Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 25, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Mar 25, 1881 Went to the Union Adams's and ordered about $100 worth of goods upon Mr. Van Derliss order who is to take a picture for it. Called on Julia Dillon. Her picture has been rejected by the American Artists and in the Academy her principal picture is badly hung down in the lower row. Painted on Giffords pictures finishing out the edges etc. and repairing damages. Mr. Dod called. A letter from Dr. Pelton wanting me to come next Thursday to go trout fishing. Mr. Skinner gave me tickets to the Opera and Mary and I went to see "Favorita" with Cary, Campanini, Galani and Monti. It was excellently given. Reichardt called today and told me he could sell my picture to Abner Harper. He offers me $220 and two pictures one by Boughton and one by Von Schendel or $275 in cash[.] I am to go see the pictures tomorrow.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
