Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 3, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Nov 3, 1886 This morning Eastman and I went down to the Battery and took a boat to the Statue of Liberty. It was a fine mild day and the great figure looked fine and commanding. It is certainly a grand and impressive object. We spent half an hour there walking about and looking at it from all points and then returned and called on Booth at the Victoria Hotel. He had gone out and we left our cards. Eastman went home and I to Marys where I found her, Marion and Bowyer at lunch. Spent some time there, then to Wilmurts to see about my pictures and ordered two little frames for sketches for Alidas fair for the home. Then to Eastmans after my satchel and came home by the 4.15 train. Tom met me at the station to my great satisfaction. After my supper, Sara, Lucy Andrews and I called on the Cantines.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
