Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, December 29, 1876, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

It snowed violently this morning and turned to rain towards evening. Walked down to Devlins and bought an Ulster Overcoat and ordered a pair of pantaloons and from there to the bank to deposit my check for the little picture. Painted a little water color of a winter day. Dined at Phillips with Hall and called on Mrs. Stedman and on the Taylors. Taylor told me he would sustain Knoedler in the Tribune if I could get him interested in American Art. Received a note from Knoedler asking me to appoint a day next week to meet him and I have named Thursday at 11 or after half past two. Wore my Ulster and find it capital for a storm. Mr. Stillman and his brother called again today and looked at all my pictures. He had bought the Boughton and said if he had seen mine first he would have bought it.
