Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday June 27, 1886
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 27, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, June 27, 1886 Perfect day in temperature and richness of atmosphere. Yesterday I made the discovery that the currant bushes were infested with the currant worm. I spent half the forenoon picking them off. Wrote to Hanna & Ives for the second time about my pictures at the Detroit exhibition. I also wrote to Weir gently hinting that he is too much given to speculation and advocating simplicity of life as a help [?] contentment and happiness. I feel that I should take a dose of my own medicine.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
