Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday April 5, 1888
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 5, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Apr 5, 1888 We have had copious April showers through the day with vivid lightning and thunder. I painted most of the day. In the evening Downing and I went over to the Grand Opera house in the rain to see Minnie Palmer in "My Sweetheart". It was pretty stupid. John McEntee was in town yesterday. He had had a letter from Nannie to whom he had sent a box of Easter flowers. That is a very hopeful incident and he feels encouraged. [Newspaper clipping attached from Thursday April 5 on Wolff art sale; R.M. Olyphant took Jervis McEntee's "November Day" at $275.]< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
