Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 16, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Nov 16, 1886 Went to N. Y. this morning and returned this evening. Saw Wilmurt and talked with him about frames for the little sketches. He is to make one to be sent to Bowyer on Saturday and then is to let me know what he will furnish them for. Went up to Marys. She had gone up to Mrs. Herricks but Marion was there. I staid to lunch and saw Bowyer. After lunch as he had business up town I walked with him as far as the Academy and saw Richards a moment. He thought the Fall exhibition which opens next week would be an interesting one. Bowyer was to meet me within an hour at my studio where I went and found Mrs. Cassidy had cleaned it and put it in fair order. Arranged my pictures and soon Bowyer came in. We talked our matter of the small pictures over. He is to secure the insertion of an advertisement in the Century for next month and is to get a little engraving of one of the pictures and frame to go in. I come home by the 4.15 train feeling I had accomplished what I went for. Mr & Mrs. Wesley Hale called this evening. I received an invitation from Pinchot to a breakfast at the Century on the 18th to meet Bartholdi. Also a letter from Alice.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
