Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 26, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Mar 26, 1887 Very cold again. I went up to Rocks and ordered a spring suit. Called on Whittredge and later he came to see me. I spoke with him about a sale next year of some of my studies and pictures. He advised me to do it and thought I would do well. Am getting a boil inside the end of my nose which is becoming very much inflamed and very painful. Marion and I dined at the Riding Club in East 58th St with Mr & Mrs. Donaldson. There were present Mrs. Whitney a cousin of Mrs. Donaldson and sister-in-law of Miss Whitney the Sculptor, Mr. & Mrs. Elihu Rost, Dr. Taylor, Mr Tompkins, Miss Marie Stewart, Mr & Mrs. Hyde, Mrs. Wickes, a very pretty woman and Mr & Mrs. Frank Fowler. It was altogether a very pleasant affair. Mr. Donaldson sent a coupe for Marion and me. Bowyer was also present. Came away at 10 and went to the club.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
