Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday January 2, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 2, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Jan 2, 1889 Painted all day until 4 o'clock. Miss Durfee came and wanted an introduction to Booth and when I hesitated she seemed offended. She wants him to look at some statue or something of that sort. We had a meeting of the "A. M. A." in Woods room at 4. We decided to have the Hubbard sale at the same time as the Darley sale, and appointed a Committee to take charge of his sketches etc. Elected Edgar M. Ward in Hubbards place. I dined at the Bannings in the Bella with Alice. They have the apartment Tiffany had. It is large and very elegant. I went to the dentists in the morning and he finished with me for the present and I sent him a check for his bill $20 which was very reasonable.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
