Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, November 19, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Painted yesterday and today on my morning picture 18x30 and am getting on pretty well with it. Went to the Art Museum for an hour. Booth came in and spent half an hour with me. He leaves on Sunday to be gone until June. Wanted me to come and see him in Richelieu tonight, which I did. Went into his dressing room at the end of the 4th act. Mrs. Booth came in and we chatted and smoked until he was called. Wrote him a little note after I got home telling him how entirely his acting satisfied me and bidding him good bye.
