Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 14, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Dec 14, 1889 Began to snow about noon and snowed very fast until evening. I was in my room all day and thankful I was not obliged to be out in the storm. I began a little picture suggested by something I saw on my way down from home. Miss Clara Baker dined with us and Downing and I went to the Metropolitan Opera house to a Symphony Concert conducted by Walter Damrosch. They gave Beethovens 7th Symphony and a Miss Lena Little sang very nicely. We found Mrs. Col. [Church?] and her sister Miss Metcalf in the box. It was Mrs. Lewis' box and she sent the tickets. We saw the ladies home and I went to the club and had some supper and got to my room about midnight.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
