Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday August 6, 1886
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 6, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Aug 6, 1886 I went over to my studio and painted a little on the head of Gertrude on which I am experimenting, but it gets worse instead of better. Wilmart sent me his bill which to my great relief was $150 less than I thought it was. My bill for studio rent came also. I am very anxious to know whether Pinchot will respond to my letter in time. I can't help a feeling that there will be some delay. I had a note from Kurtz saying my Autumn picture had not been returned from Detroit although the smaller one had; I therefore wrote to Hanna & Ives today regarding it, which is the third letter I have written them concerning it. Sara came home from Millets Point today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
