Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 22, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Jan 22, 1874- One of New Yorks horrible days, fog, rain mud and misery. John Durand called. Showed him my figures of which he spoke very encouragingly. Mary, Mrs. Sawyer & Mrs. Crane called. Dined at Marys after which Calvert invited me to go see "Money" at Wallacks, a very nice play and well acted. After the play went to the club. Proctor the astronomer was there looking remarkably like Kensett at first glance. I was not introduced to him but I joined in the conversation and found him particularly genial and friendly.
