Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 17, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Apr 17, 1882 Downing, Edwina and Lucy left for N.Y. by the morning train. I remained until the noon train somewhat anxious about my father. He seemed better and I came back to town, feeling very depressed. In the evening went with Mary, Calvert, Gussie, Lucy & Downing & Edwina to see Booth in Richelieu occupying his box. Saw him in his dressing room and at the end of the play he came to the box in his cardinal robes. There was great enthusiasm and he was repeatedly called out. What a great gift it is so to move and impress a great theatre full of people.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
