Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 6, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Feb 6, 1882 A letter from Booth from Galveston agreeing to the plan of Downing and Bowyer and in the afternoon another letter from him from New Orleans enclosing his check for five thousand dollars which comes in good time as Bowyer has an opportunity to buy a business already established. How kind and generous of Booth. I knew he would be glad to do it. Attended the Council. A proposition for a Winter Exhibition was considered. Wood was in yesterday. He thinks my Academy picture the best thing I have done. Beard put a king fisher in for me. I have improved my Humboldt Valley and hope to make a good picture. Came to my room from the Academy and wrote to Booth at Nashville.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
