Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday June 30, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 30, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, June 30, 1889 This is the second anniversary of our fathers death. It has been a warm but very beautiful day and I have been sincerely thankful that I could be in so pleasant and quiet a place as on this hill top. I wish we could always stay here. I have written to Eastman Johnson and to Mrs. Steele. This evening John & Julia came up and brought Ben Foster a young artist whom Julia has invited up for a short time. They spoke of seeing a favorable notice of my pictures at the Paris exposition in the Sun, but I imagine it is the one in the Times.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
