Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 31, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Jan 31, 1889 Mild and spring like. I walked up to [29th?] St to consult Dr Hunt about my eye which troubles me. No street cars are running on account of a strike. I painted a little and was not so hurried. In the evening went around to the club a little while. It rained when I came to my room about 10. I met Eastman Johnson in 14th St and stopped him [?] to the club and wanted me to go back [?] and sleepy and declined. He was somewhat provoked that I had not been up to see him but I explained how busy I have been and mollified him.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
