Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 3, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Apr 3, 1886 Attended Silvas funeral at the residence of his mother 214 W. 43rd St. He was dressed in his uniform and his hat and sword lay upon his coffin. I always think of him as a soldier. I was glad to see so many artists there, Wood, Brown, Moran, Parton, Wilmarth and others. I see by this extract from the Tribune that Andrews is now a major in the 21st Regiment. I wrote him a congratulatory note this morning. I also sent my note to Reid after keeping it over night. A lady called to get Water Colors or designs in Black & White for Nashville. Went to the Century Monthly meeting. Yewell and the four others were elected. Smith Lane introduced resolutions for increasing the Initiation fee and the dues of the club which were postponed. Calverts model of the Grant Monument was there and elicited a good deal of interest, fully as much as he could expect under the conditions. Eastman Johnson exhibited a beautiful portrait of a Detroit lady. I had nothing there.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
