Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 3, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, May 3, 1889 Went to consult Dr Hunt about my eyes. He found no apparent difficulty but has ordered glasses a little stronger and is to send me some medicine. From there I went to Rocks and ordered a suit of summer clothes. Then to the Academy to see the exhibition which seemed a very good one on the whole. I spoke to Mr. Galt about the offer for my picture and he hopes to see the man again. It seems two people wanted the same picture. Then I came to my room and had some lunch and a rest. I wrote Sara last night I wouldnt be home until Monday. Went around to the club and saw Eastman.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
