Jervis McEntee Diaries
Tuesday March 1, 1887
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 1, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Mar 1, 1887 I awoke with an attack of indigestion accompanied by head ache and nausea. After breakfast I felt better but have not felt entirely well all day. I did not feel strong enough to go to Dr. Taylors. I wrote a note for $750 and sent it up to Bray to be put to my credit and sent my letter to Janette. Have painted all day on my sky picture which does not please me as yet. Griswold came to see me. He has been in Italy fifteen years but has not changed greatly. I fancy he finds it rather discouraging to come back. He spoke very warmly of my three winter pictures and seemed to think I am painting well. Bowyer and I went to the Bijou Theatre and saw Nat Godwin in the "Skating Rink" a foolish medley with a little that was amusing in a great deal of the dreariest rubbish.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
