Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday February 24, 1882
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 24, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Feb 24, 1882 Cold again. Have finished my picture and improved it by putting a figure on horseback near the foreground. Calvert and I attended Millets lecture at the Academy and afterwards went to the club. I am unhappy and discouraged and am beginning to feel again the worrying anxieties that pressured me a year ago. I have a feeling of loneliness and think of the days when I had my dear Gertrude to sympathise with me on all my troubles, with a sinking of the heart and an awful dread of the inevitable changes of the future.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
