Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, February 5, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wrote to Mr. Dod that I would send the picture today and would put the price at $1050. If that did not suit him he might fill out his check as he thought proper. Mrs. Booth called with Mrs. Hoyt a daughter of Genl. Scott and a very pretty woman, to see the Booth pictures. Mrs. Booth who had not seen them for a year said they pleased her as well as ever. Went to the theatre to see Richelieu. Took Calvert. Called on the Cardinal in his dressing room. Slept badly I think on account of the sewer gas which pervaded the city. Called on Mrs Stone who was not at home. At the Boardmans. Stopped at the Club. Found one of the servants helping poor Stoddard on with his coat, too full of gin to help himself.
