Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, April 16, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Mr & Mrs. Wheeler called last night and proposed to me to take one of their horses for a picture which I have agreed to do. This morning received a letter from Doll & Richards of course declining to take my pictures which was as I expected. I have no doubt they are not able to buy. Mr. Vose of Providence came in and bought a small picture which I am to finish for him. Had a disagreeable experience with the baggage express man. Went to the office and complained of him and also wrote a note to Westcott. Gertrude went home this afternoon with Nannie McEntee. I shall be lonely without her but I must go to work. She will have a horse to drive soon and that will be good for her.
