Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday March 2, 1890
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 2, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Mar 2, 1890 Was a cold day. I staid in the home all day until evening when I went down to see John McEntee who has been nominated by the Republicans for Mayor of the city, against his protestations, but he was finally forced to accept and he is I think the best man in the city for the position. I predict he will be elected by a good majority for he is universally held in esteem, and justly so, as a genuine man, with no assumption nor pretense. Sara went to the water color exhibition yesterday and says my picture was marked "sold" but I have had not notice of it and somewhat doubt it particularly as it was not reported in today's Tribune among the sales. Once before a card got on my picture by mistake and I fear this as another case of that kind.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
