Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, July 7, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, July 7, 1874- Painted a little on Marions picture this forenoon. In the afternoon I went out to Leggs Mill with some grain on the buck-board and took Mary Gifford along. Received a letter from Alfred Booth this evening in which he says he will take my "Pine Tree". I offered it to him for $500 and agreed to take back the little Kaatskill picture at $200 but he wishes to have both. Answered his letter and sent an order to Sellick to get the picture.
