Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 15, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Jan 15, 1889 Sara and I went home Monday morning. It was a bright Roman winter day with North wind but no snow and no ice in the river. Katy had the home all in order, good fires, and a good dinner and the old home was most delightful and restful. I did a lot of business. Stopped and saw Mantustock and gave him directions about packing Sams picture and sending it to me. Today I put the copy of the Boughton picture I made in the frame, packed the other and brought it down with me to have a new frame made before I send it to the Players. Went down to see John McEntee last night, who has just returned from Canada and after I got home wrote to Lucy. Today has been bright and keen. After doing innumerable things I came away by the 5.30 ferry boat and came down via H. R. arriving here about 10.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
