Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 15, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Feb 15, 1888 Cold as winter again with a N. W. gale. I went up to Dr. Browns directly after breakfast and he made an appointment for me for Mar. 9. From there to see Ortgies who will come to see me on Monday morning. Went to the water color exhibition and spent a couple of hours. Many things are sold--but I am very anxious about my sale. So much depends upon it and there are so many chances for disaster. I attended the social meeting at the Academy this evening. There was a good attendance but I was struck by the fact that there were so many artists I did not know. Poor old Mr. Whitehorne was there. He is 84 years old and has been an Academician 56 years and I think he is very poor--I don't know but imagine he is. I took pains to talk with him.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
