Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 2, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Mar 2, 1888 There was a favorable notice of my pictures in the Times this morning. Sara and I walked up to the gallery after breakfast. Ward and Huntington were there selecting something for the Club. Avery was there also. I thanked him for his note and said I thought his advice worth much, and that so far as I could I had acted on that line. I called his attention to a notice in the Times, entirely voluntary so far as I was concerned &c, and I took no revenges. I spent the day doing many things, among others writing in 25 copies of the constitution of the "Mutual Aid" the amendment I omitted to have printed and sent one to each member. Sara and [I] went in the evening to see "M[?]" at the Academy of Music, which we found quite entertaining. Julia Dillon came in while we were at dinner. She was up at my exhibition when the gas was lighted. She said it looked well and there were a great many people in.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
