Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Saturday, January 19, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Dined with Taylor last night. He read me parts of his new poem which strikes me as the most important of his [?] work. Booth stood for me in Iago on Wednesday and I finished it changing the expression and making it less "stagey". He stood for me again yesterday in Ruy Blas but I did not accomplish much. Thursday I worked all day on my large picture. The light was good, no one interrupted me and I accomplished a great deal. Am going home today. The weather is like summer after two or three cold days.
