Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 23, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Jan 23, 1889 Have not painted today although I am most anxious to get at my sunset on the plains. Robt Wilkinson came in a little while in the forenoon and was greatly pleased with the little picture I painted for him for Mrs. Maurice. I went down to the Equitable and lunched with him and Julia and Mr & Mrs. Boardman in the ladies room of the lawyers club in the upper part of the Building. Mrs. Boardman was bright and pleasant and we had a nice lunch. Afterward we went up on the roof of the building. It is a wonderful structure and has a colony within it as large as a small town.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
