Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 14, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Mar 14, 1888 I went up to see Ortgies this morning to get a settlement for my sale but could not because his book keeper who lives at Orange is detained by the storm. It is a week since my sale. He told me Hall had abandoned his sale entirely and was going to store his pictures. In spite of the poor result of my sale I begin to think I had a lucky escape. All day at the Academy. We are progressing satisfactorily with the hanging. Found on my door an invitation to Rossiter Johnsons this evening but was too tired to go. The city is still cut off from communication with the country by rail and no mails arrive. Business is in [?] and it will be some time before it recovers from this [?].< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
