Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, November 17, 1876, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Booth came in just before my dinner time. I was delighted to see him and caved in when I tried to express my gratitude for his kind letter. He put his arm about me and was as gentle as a woman. He is hot for having me do the character subjects and I am going to begin on Tuesday. I told him it seemed audacious in me to attempt it but he thinks I can do it. He staid here a long time and we talked about everything.
