Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, August 17, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wrote to Stafford to ask him how the exhibition promised and to Whittredge proposing to him to go to Bangall later in the season. We were all very much startled at the annexed notice of an accident to Booth in todays Tribune. [Newspaper notice "Actor Perhaps Fatally Injured" attached.] That is all we know of it. I have written to Mrs. Booth begging her or some one to tell me about it. I am in hopes the reports are greatly exaggerated but I am most anxious to hear further which I undoubtedly will by tomorrows Tribune. The photographs of the baby came today and are excellent. I have sent one to Lucy and one to Gussie. Wrote to Whittredge, proposing to him to go to Bangall for October. Received a nice letter from Eastman Johnson. When I went to the Strand to mail my letter to Mrs. Booth I saw Perry who had just come from Leeds, in a waggon with George Wynkoop on his way out there where Homer already is. Had a postal card from Bellows who was disappointed in Hurley and could not get in at Wynkoops and has gone to Leeds.
