Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday January 18, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 18, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Jan 18, 1889 Painted on several of my pictures but did not accomplish much. I wrote to Bailey and to Robt Wilkinson and also to Wm. P Eno about my pictures, also to Fred Norton about loaning his Cliff picture to Joe Cornell. I meant to call on the Churches and the Bannings this evening but Downing and Sedgwick wanted to go to see Dockstaders Minstrels and I went with them. We were egregiously "sold". Instead of Dockstader there was a sort of a strolling company who went through a lot of the most wearisome trash. After the play I went around to the Players. There was but one man there and I didnt know him. I looked about, had some oysters and beer and went up into the luxurious library and wrote a note to Sara. It is a most elegant and comfortable place and I feel like going oftener to get familiar with it.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
