Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 9, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, March 9, 1873- Gertrude caught more cold and I regret she went. I had the doctor to prescribe for her last night. I went to the club for an hour. Talked with Bret. Harte, Col. Hay, Whitelaw Reid who introduced me to Edmund Yates who leaves for England on Wednesday. Stedman presented me to him as the most "characteristic American artist". Today I wrote a note to Mr. Hoe calling his attention to Mrs. Mozier's sale and bespeaking his interest.
