Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 14, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Jan 14, 1886 Went to the dentists and am to go again Saturday. Began a winter picture yesterday upon which I have painted today with poor success. Wrote a note to Gill regarding my little picture of the uplands which he wants to show to a man who he thinks will buy it. What stuff and nonsense. I wrote nothing ever to be ashamed of. Fuller called. Still cold snug winter weather. I wrote to Hanna and Ives of Detroit today and had all I could do to restrain myself from being pretty severe. However I reflected that they might have some satisfactory explanation for the delay. Dined at Lockwood Deforests with Benjamin. In the night I was very ill although I ate a simple dinner and felt well when I went to bed.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
