Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, January 30, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Theodore Davis of Harpers called and got my picture "Sowers of the Delaware" to engrave for Mr. Benjamins article. Mr. Bancroft called and read a letter from Mrs. Taylor. She expects to come home in April if not before. Have painted only a little today. Received a note from Alice which I answered and a letter from J.C. Bates of Providence enclosing his check for $125 for a little picture I painted for him since I came down and which I sent to him this evening by Adams Express. A Mrs. Hamlin who has relatives in Waterville called on me to inquire about Janette Hubbard. She knew our family or about them when they were at school at Clinton. Dined with Eastman Johnson and went to a Trustees meeting at the Century. Bancroft was there and walked part way home with me.
