Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 22, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Nov. 22, 1872- Tuesday evening Sara dined with us. Weir came in and wanted us to go to some theatre so we went to Bryants minstrels and were somewhat amused. Wednesday evening I dined at Fitch's with Weir, H.K. Brown, Thompson, Gifford, Hubbard and Whittredge. Last night my picture from England was delivered to me and with it a charge of $39.55. I sat up with Kensett who is ill with pneumonia but not so ill as I was. He is recovering rapidly. Today I wrote to Mr. Hamilton, to Sellstedt to return my Danger Signal, to Mr. Chickering that his picture was ready for him and to the people who brought my picture over that I considered their charge excessive. Fitch called with Mrs. Salisbury and her sister who looked at all my pictures with apparent interest.
