Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday January 3, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 3, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Jan 3, 1889 Painting all day trying to get my pictures ready for the Darley and Hubbard sales, but my work does not please me. Whether it is that I am absorbed in other things or lack the stimulus of new subjects I know that my work is not to me what it ought to be. Beard came in for a while. He too is growing old and I think begins to feel it. Sedgwick came over after school. I think he feels homesick and came to me for a little comfort. He is a most lovable boy and I am very fond of him. Alice and Bowyer were at dinner. They went away early, Marion went to bed and I came away a little after 9 and not feeling in the mood for calling or going to the club. I came to my room.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
