Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, February 1, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Mr & Mrs Dod did not come on account of the storm which lasted through today and into the evening. I am greatly disappointed and worried about a note of my fathers for $500 due on Wednesday. I hoped that possibly Mr. Dod would take my picture at some price. Girard dined with me and staid all night. I wrote a note to Pinchot strongly recommending Weir to go to Paris in charge of the pictures and after dinner called at his house but he had gone. I however saw him afterwards at the Private view of the Water Color Society. He seemed to favor Weir and said the others did. Had a pleasant evening at the Water Color rooms where they had a good exhibition. Wrote to Gertrude.
