Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday November 30, 1887
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 30, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Nov 30, 1887 Painted all day. In the evening went to the private view at the American Art Galleries. There was such a crush and crowd I staid only a short time. They seem to have plenty of pictures and several Academicians have one or more pictures there who have nothing in the Academy. I wish the Academy would not try to have a fall exhibition. I went around to the club a little while but I do not feel like seeing any one, am tired and disinclined to meet people. I wrote to Sara after I came to my room. It is very cold and the wind and dust are very trying. I am wondering how Sara stands the cold and the loneliness at home.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
