Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, February 9, 1876, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

There was a great fire down Broadway last night. I walked down to see the ruins this morning but the police allowed no one to go near. Three firemen were killed by a falling wall. Called on Jas. Beard and talked Academy. I was glad to hear him talk as sensibly as he did. Called on Gray. He is a little morbid but I cheered him up. Lambdin came in to see me.
