Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 21, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Apr 21, 1886 Went to see Dr. Hunt about my eyes. He prescribed for them. A letter from Alice who has given a letter of introduction to a young English Artist a friend of Bella (Brush). Bella and her husband have arrived in America and Alice wonders how she will entertain him at College Hill. If he is judicious he wont put her to that strain for I fancy he would be bored to death there. Downing was at dinner. He and I went up to Barnums circus but there were no seats left so we went to Tony Pastors Theatre and had a front seat in the first balcony for 50 cents. The performance was a variety and very entertaining.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
