Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday January 23, 1886
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 23, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Jan 23, 1886 Went around and saw the Fairman Rogers and the Bookwelter collections in the morning and met some old friends, Leutzes "Iconoclast"[,] Boughtons Departure of the May Flower and saw a number of interesting things. Went home with the 11.20 train. It was a pleasant winter day and the cutting the ice and the ice boats flitting about made the landscape cheery. It was cold and good sleighing at home. Tom met me with the cutter. Found my father remarkably bright and Sara said he had been so all the week. We attended the dinner at Johns this evening and had a very pleasant and enjoyable time, just the sort of entertainment I enjoy most. There were only Mr & Mrs. Cantine, Gertrude Tremper, Sara and me besides John and Nannie.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
