Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, January 17, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Went down town to see about the brackets of our curtain rods and Col. Lawrence about my beaver skins which I told him to sell for not less than four dollars each. Have tried to paint but do not seem able to concentrate my thought. It wanders off to Gertrude and to [blank] every where but when I would hold it. Calvert came in. Had a note from Eastman saying he would go home with me tomorrow and asking me to dine with him which I did, meeting him in the car on the elevated road.
