Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 14, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Jan 14, 1887 Six or seven inches of snow fell in the night and today we have had sleet and rain. There is a great body of snow on the ground now and I had Tom remove some of it from the stable and barn roofs for fear it might crush them. I walked down to the mail and received a letter from Downing saying he could not come up now. Not a word about the little pictures from any one. I begin to think the scheme I hoped so much from will be a failure as I have no money to advertise more. I sent my letter to Fuller today. I went to my studio but did not do much. I begin to be a little anxious and worried and when I feel that way I cannot work.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
