Jervis McEntee Diaries: February 21, 1884

Thursday, Feb 21 ,1884 Weather cold and bracing. The bodies of Delong and his companions in the Jeanette Arctic expedition have just arrived. I wonder if Delongs wife will see him and whether they have been frozen all this time. Painted on my picture. Julia and Gertrude came and later Julia Dillon. The Newton trial proceeded at the Century. They are managing their case badly and compelling us to feel that we as the board of management are on trial. I received from Mr. Gordon today a Fellowship in perpetuity of the Museum of Art.
