Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, November 4, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Nov 4, 1873- Election day, a crisp, splendid day. I went down town and voted immediately after breakfast and painted the rest of the day. This evening I read in the tribune with the greatest satisfaction and delight that Vaux's plan has been accepted by the executive committee of the Centennial building. I have written him a note congratulating him. The election has gone against the Republicans. Mattrick[?] is elected Judge over Kingston which I regret perhaps more than anything.
