Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday March 8, 1882
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 8, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Mar 8, 1882 Bowyer lunched with me and in the evening he and Downing invited me to go to the theatre to see Samuel of Posen a foolish piece in which the principal character alone has the least interest. Julia Dillon called. Vanderbilts reception occurred today. I did not go. I cant stand the contempt of these rich men for our own Art. All the artists went. I wish they did not. Mrs. Gifford sent me a long communication last night detailing her complaints against Giffords family. She said she was about to institute legal proceedings against them which seems to be very unwise. Mrs. Gray called and invited me to her house this evening to meet H. K. Brown and a few other friends. I went and saw Brown and his nephew, Mr & Mrs. Huntington, Platt & his wife and a Mr & Mrs. Gaylord and another young lady.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
