Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 7, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Apr 7, 1886 Fine morning. Went to the Academy for an hour. There are a number of pictures sold, but none of mine. When I came to the building found George Coale, and his son, now a professor in a Maryland college waiting for me. Coale came to my room with great difficulty. He told me he had had a slight stroke of paralysis and that he never expected to come to New York again. I tried to cheer him, but he feels the gravity of his situation. He invited Hubbard and me to dine with him at the Union Square Hotel tomorrow at 6. Shortly after he left [?] for tomorrow came from Mrs. Lockwood [?] obliged to decline. Vanderliss took away two of my pictures yesterday saying he would keep one of them. They were "Over the Hills" and "October", each 20 x 24.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
