Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, August 23, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday August 23 - I returned yesterday from Dry Brook where I went on aug. 1 intending to stay until Sept. 1, if I found it profitable and agreeable. I staid at the house of Samuel M. Seager and his son-in-law Frank Fairbarn. We had a great deal of wet weather and as I was painting along the stream in the woods I lost a great deal of time. At such times I was obliged to stay in the house. A part of the time there were thirteen children staying there and the noise and confusion became intolerable. I did not find the sketching as interesting as I anticipated and indeed I was lonely and not very happy as it had rained for several days I came away after having been there three weeks. (Dry Brook is near Mt. Graham and Arkville.)< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
