Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 10, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, May 10, 1881 Kept awake nearly all night by cats in the hall. Sara returned from Boston giving encouraging accounts of Maurice and his reception and impressions of the place. Very hot weather. Walked down the Bowery and went to see Paul Gifford about Bates' picture. Painted a little impression of the spring from our hill. Launt came in looking pretty tired and banged up. Lawrence Hutton called. Dined at Eastmans with Thompson. Capt. Phil was there just come from California. I was delighted to see him and we gave each other a good hug. We had a very pleasant time and staid until 11 oclock. Mary went to Rondout with Sara.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
