Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 22, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Jan 22, 1889 After breakfast I walked up to Geo. Smillies studio but he was not in then over to Thos. Morans for the second time and he was not in. I wanted to interest them in pushing Robt. Wilkinson for the Century and when I came to my studio I wrote each of them a note. Have painted on my plains sunset picture. Mrs Pychouska and Edith Cook called. I had a letter from Sara in which she said she could not come down as Bowyer and Agnes had written they were coming there on Thursday. My picture from Joe Cornell for the Paris Exposition came today and I sent Fred Nortons "Cliff" picture to hang in its place. Marion, Sedgwick, Downing and I played poker and about 10 oclock I went around to the Century for a little while.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
