Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 8, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Apr 8, 1888 Sara, Mary and I went to hear Mr. Eaton in [Chapins?] old church. It was a bright day and many people thronged the streets. After service we went around to the Century to see the pictures and from there I went up to the Cranch's where I was invited to dine at 2 o'clock. They live in a flat in E. 84th St. Miss [Walker?] dined with us. About 5 o'clock I came down and called on Lily French and Mrs. Weir who is visiting her. I found them besides Mrs. Carey, Mrs. Alden Weir and a young man. Lily looked remarkably well. I have not seen her for two years. She showed me photographs of Emmas children of which she has four. Presently Alden and John came in. They were going out to tea and I came down to Marys. Mrs Youmans came to tea with us and Mrs. Custer was to have come but did not get Marys note. I came to my room early as I was up late last night.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
