Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 11, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Dec 11, 1889 I came away by the 8.50 train for N. Y. It had been raining but had cleared and the day has turned out fine. I got to my room at noon and began painting at once and am improving my picture. I have written to Elihu Root and to Beaman in behalf of Wilkinson. Oliver Johnson died yesterday and there is a long obituary in the Tribune. Mrs. Scott Lord to whom this notice refers was the second wife of Mr. Russell Lord the old chief engineer of the Del. & Hudson Canal and an old friend of my fathers. I remember her well as a very sweet woman who had a most bitter experience after I knew her. Went around to the club. Saw Collins, Geo. Butler and La Farge. Butler is always making puns and Lafarge seems cynical and never thinks it worth his while to waste any time on me.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
