Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 15, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Dec 15, 1886 Snowing this morning when I went down town and has snowed at intervals through the day with S. wind. I went over to my studio and spent the day painting two little marine sketches and now have 39 small ones and three larger ones. I wonder if I will sell them. I am anxious to see whether the advertisement in the Century will be of any avail. [If?] I cant sell these little pictures it seems to me I cant sell any thing. The Academy closes on Saturday night and I have heard of no offers being made for either of my pictures. I have a lot of money to pay and begin to feel anxious again. I had notes from Miss Nesmith, Mrs. Anderson and Emma Brace to whom I sent cards for the Academy and a letter from Mary. When I came from my studio at 4, it was snowing hard with the wind N. E. and now at 10 it is still snowing and the wind is blowing hard.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
