Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 10, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Feb 10, 1886 Began a winter picture of something I saw from the car window and painted vigorously until 3. J. G. Brown came in with accounts of Mrs. Winter. He has collected $160 and been to see John Taylor Johnston about getting her into Bloomingdale Asylum as she is getting unmanageable at her nephews, but he got no satisfaction from him. I have written to Jas. B. Johnston and had two notes from him. He advises me to go to his brother but proposes nothing on his part. Still we are making efforts in other quarters to get her there. Miss Ruff of Philadelphia called with a letter from Lambdin. She had with her a Mrs. or Miss Tryon (I think) a fine looking woman. Miss Ruff is a cousin of Jake Sharpes wife and wanted information about places in the Kaatskills. I made a long and very pleasant call on Mrs. Kimble at the Clarendon this evening and afterwards went around to the club, and saw Perry who wants to start an Artists Club which I think well of. A note from Booth asking me when I want seats.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
