Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, January 5, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Jan 5, 1874- Recd a letter from Moore today very cooly informing me that as he had not sold the picture he got of me nearly a year ago he would not be able to send me any money. I sat down at once and wrote him that if he did not pay me for the three pictures I sent him back on the old account he must return the last pictures to me, that I was done selling him my pictures at small prices and waiting for my pay until he sold them and that I never contemplated giving him any such advantages as he seemed to expect as a matter of course. I am disgusted with him and what he gets from me hereafter he will have to pay me the cash for. Wrote to Mary. There was rain this morning turning to sleet in the afternoon and the weather is growing colder. Painted on my first little figure today deepening the background.
