Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday March 9, 1888
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 9, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Mar 9, 1888 Still cold and windy, typical March. Spent an hour in Dr. B[?] dental chair and from there went to the gallery to see Ortgies. He was not in but his book keeper said they would settle with me on Monday if that would suit me. Went down to Niblo's and bought tickets for Sara and myself tonight to see Herrman the Magician. I lunched with Fitch and met the selection committee at the Academy where we went to work at 1 oclock to select and reject pictures and we staid there until 5 oclock. There is a perfect wilderness of pictures and some very big and very bad ones. In the evening Sara and I went to Niblos to see Hermann who did many wonderful things. Miss Cortis dined with us and she and Mary went to see Irving in Faust.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
