Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 6, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Mar 6, 1887 Downing came over to my room with me this morning and while he was here Whittredge came in and smoked a cigar with me. He seemed in good spirits. I think he received many encouraging compliments concerning his pictures last night. After he went I began a letter to Mrs. Steele and Downing went out to call on Jones a friend of his whom he brought back with him. I accomplished very little writing but after dinner I came back to my room and wrote to Sade, sending her a check for Mason, one for Tom and one for herself. I also finished Mrs. Steeles letter and mailed them both on my way over to tea. I found Mrs. Youmans there whom I have not met before since the death of her husband. She looks very worn and old but seemed like her old self. She spent the evening and we indulged in many reminiscences, particularly of the charming Mrs. Slemmer of twenty years ago.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
