Diary entry for September 7, 1910


John Sloan, American painter, etcher, and illustrator, 1871–1951


Sept. 7, 1910

Wrote Golz that I could not officially accept Inv.[itation] to show the Independent Ex. in Columbus, Ohio, but that Henri would (privately) make a selection of the exhibits in that show, or that I would be glad to make suggestions — but that Columbus must write individually as there is no organization.

Went to Petitpas’ for dinner. All of the clan except Mr. Yeats, and I left shortly after dinner. Four ladies came over and sat at the table later. One or two Mr. Yeats had known before, one a Mrs. Coffin, the other’s names I didn’t catch.

Mrs. Ray Brown wrote from Bellport, L. I. asking me to make a banner for the Women’s suffrage parade in Oct. Says that Mrs. Glackens referred her to me as a pro-suffragist. I replied yes, if the W. S. P. showed no antagonism to real Social Democracy.
