Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday April 8, 1886
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 8, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Apr 8, 1886 Have been painting on the figure in "Telling the Bees." I hope I shall improve it. Not a soul comes here. So far as any interest in my work is manifested I might as well be in Patagonia. One of my pictures came home from Springfield a few days ago and I am in hopes the other one is sold although I do not know anything about it. Hubbard and I dined with George Coale and his son Dorsey at the Union Square hotel. We had a most elaborate dinner of 12 or 15 courses contrary to my expectation anal I think Coale's also. After dinner Coale went to the Century on my card and I called on Mrs. Frank Weeks where I have not been in a long [?] daughter of Chas. Astor B[?].< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
