Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 16, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, July 16, 1886 Weir went to Hudson by the 10.40 train this morning to visit Mary [Gifford?] [?] little visit here was very satisfactory to both of us. I wish I were [?] my friends oftener. Yesterday a note of Girards came due on [?] to pay $150 and I did not know where it was to come from but [?] me speak of it handed me the money. I told Weir of it when [?] was always a way out of difficulties. He knows what such anxieties are. It rained hard last night and has been cloudy today but we have had a soaking rain which began to be needed. I worked in the garden a while today. I am trying to think of painting but cannot succeed in getting into a quiet state of mind. If I had a little money now and could go away somewhere for a little sketching in some quiet spot I know I would enjoy painting from nature.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
