Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 14, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, May 14, 1886 John and I took a long walk to the top of East Rock which is now included in a city Park. It was a bright, beautiful day and we enjoyed our ramble. After lunch we went over to the Art School where John delivered his last lecture of this term. Mrs. Weir went with us. We left her there and came on together to New York to go to Milford tomorrow. John went up to Eastmans to dinner and to stay over night. I came to the Century and got my dinner and then came to my room. I found a draft from Bray for the proceeds of my note but nothing from Pinchot about the picture in the Academy. I wrote a short note to Mrs. Weir to tell her how much I had enjoyed my visit.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
