Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 10, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Feb 10, 1887 The carpenter came today and worked all day. I am getting on slowly. Went and saw Mr. Dennison the painter about the floor and the walls. He said he would come over before 3 oclock and look at the work to be done but did not come. Fuller called and looked at my pictures. He wants me to paint some pictures which shall be mostly sky, which I am just in the mood for doing. Calvert and I called on Mrs. Taylor and Lily. They are packing up after being in the country for six months and going back to Germany. I doubt if they will ever come back again. I think they find things very much changed here and are lonely.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
