Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 15, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Feb 15, 1886 Very warm and spring like, the snow nearly all gone. I heard a blue bird on the hill whose gurgling note seemed filled with the spirit of spring. Came down in the 7.40 Morning train and arriving at my studio found a check from Auchincloss for the balance on the picture which I went to the bank and deposited. Finished my letter to Mrs. Steele and mailed it with my photograph as she requested, and returned Mrs. Stones Ms. with a note. Julia Donaldson arrived this evening and she and Harry are to sail for Europe in about ten days. Downing was at dinner also. Carrie Porter called on Mary today. They with Mrs. Wilkins are staying at the St. Cloud. I went up to call on them in the evening but found only Mrs. Wilkins and her grand son, Carrie and Porter having gone to the theatre. Stopped at the club on my return but found it pretty dull there. A Mr [blank] a representative of the Mail and Express called and I had a little talk on art matters with him. The Artists Fund had their first nights sale this evening. The prices were low, but as Fitch said at the club about the same as last year.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
