Jervis McEntee Diaries: February 4, 1877

Snedecor brought a Mr & Mrs Wright of Boston to my studio yesterday. They are buying pictures and came to see mine. Did not buy but seemed interested and I hope they come again. Went to the Century Monthly Meeting. Sent my two little winter pictures. All the amendments to the Constitution tending to change the committee on admissions were voted down. Wrote to Maurice and to Girard today. Mr. Boardman called. Spent the evening at Taylors. Taylor gave us an amusing description of Wagners "Gotterdamerung" which Thomas gave last night. He said it was like stones grinding together with an occasional shoot of a whole load on the side walk and through it all Madame Papenheim screeching at the top of her voice. Mrs Taylor said it was simple chaos to her. I begged Taylor to write a description of it. Wrote to Maurice & to Girard.
