Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 11, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Feb 11, 1882 Painted on my Humboldt picture but it does not suit me. Mr. Dole and Miss Hallowell called. Attended a special meeting of the Century trustees to hear a report of the committee on moving up town. Lots in 40th St. were favorably considered but were found to be encumbered with restrictions which made it impracticable to consider them and the committee was instructed to inquire as to the possibility of getting the conditions removed. It does not look to me as though we would move very soon.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
