Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, April 2, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Julia came today and Gertrude Tomkins also. I have worked on my picture a good deal. Booth came to bid me good bye before starting for Chicago tomorrow to be gone six weeks. Tuttle came while he was here and just as Booth went Hubbard came with a Rev. Mr. [blank] and two ladies who made a long call which they seemed to enjoy. After they went a Rev. Mr. McGrisley of Greenfield Mass. came. He seemed familiar with my pictures and spent more than an hour with me looking at all of them. I had a very pleasant interview with him and I think he thoroughly enjoyed his call. Went to the Standard Theatre with Gertrude, Sara and Marion to see "Pinafore". I had a letter from Mrs. Taylor yesterday written in a brave spirit.
