Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, January 20, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Jan 20, 1874- After breakfast went up and called on Eastman Johnson. On my return found my box of pictures here. It is very cold again. Dined at Vauxs and called on Mrs. Sawyer who is at Mr. Cranes. Fitch handed me a roll of paper as I was going out telling me it was from Mr. Durand. What was my delight on opening it to find it was his engraving of the "Ariadne" with his autograph. I immediately wrote Mr. Durand a note and tried to express my sincere pleasure in his remembrance of me.
