Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 17, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Aug 17, 1889 A charming day very like yesterday in temperature. I went down town early and have been over at my studio this afternoon painting on my mothers portrait which I do not succeed with very well. Calvert and Downing came this evening. It is more like an October than an August evening. I saw a glow-worm this evening for the first time.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
