Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 23, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

The frame for Joe's picture of the "Christmas Greens" came Wednesday and I painted on the picture. Thursday I had a severe head ache and spent the whole day in my room. Girard came up. Received a letter from Booth enclosing my note for $1000 given to him in 1866, wishing me to consider the picture as an equivalent for principal and interest. He had neglected to credit me with all the interest I had paid. I have paid him interest to Dec. 1871. Today I boxed and sent the "Burning of the Christmas Greens" by express to Joe, care J & A McMillan, St. John N.B. getting a duplicate receipt which I sent to the McMillans stating the value on the box at $300. Old Mr. Tubby called to see us. He walked from home over to Judge Lawtons office.
