Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday November 11, 1881
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 11, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Nov 11, 1881 The paper hanger finished today and I like the effect. The painter came and gave the first coat but cannot finish until Monday when I must be at home. Called to see about the fan. It will cost $25 to mend it and I have concluded not to have it done now. Called on Julia Dillon in her new home in the Stuyvesant building and went around to the club. Saw Thompson but very few there. Saw Ben Butler and promised to join the G.B.'s this winter.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
