Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 10, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Feb 10, 1890 Bright, wintry morning. A little snow in the mountains. Mercury at 10 degrees. I walked down town and back feeling much better. Found a note from Genl. Sharpe wanting me to go and see the model for the figure of the sailor for the Ulster Co. monument. Went to see Col. Tremper and told him I had been and gave him my impression of it. I was careful to say that it was not the kind of sculpture I admired much but thought it perhaps as good as we could get under our restrictions as to money. Tom went to work on the street again today. Jansen brought another cord of wood today. I came away by the 4.10 train and went to the Century for some supper and came to my room early. Found a note from Annie Norton inviting me to dine with them on Friday evening to meet Mrs Johnson and her daughters.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
