Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 5, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Dec 5, 1888 Ordered my frames today for the Husted and the Welles pictures. Robbins came to see me to urge me to accept the appointment on the Jury for Art for the Paris exposition. He had by request of some of the Council of the Academy written me at Rondout to urge me to accept. I have finally, very reluctantly decided to accept and have written Rush Hawkins to that effect. Have painted today on a little picture I painted a year ago. I neglected to put into my note ordering canvases from Devoe yesterday a sample and today a boy called to get it. This is an unfortunate delay as I am anxious to get to work on them. Booth sent me two seats for tomorrow night to see Othello. He as Iago, Barrett as Othello.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
