Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 23, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, May 23, 1887 I drove Jamie up to the 7.40 train and found it had been [gone?] half an hour the time having changed. He came back and left by the noon train. I went down town and got the map of our property from Girards office and brought it up home and spent the entire forenoon making a copy of it. It is the amended map Calvert and I settled upon last year. In the afternoon I went over to my studio and looked over my studies to think over what I should do to them. I dont seem able to get to work at them, there are so many things to take my attention. I wish I had nothing to think of but my Art. That is what an artist should never surrender to any other consideration.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
