Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, March 21, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wrote to Rev Francis Gilliat at Pottsville Pa the address sent me by Bishop Doane. Am quite interested to see what he will say. Eastman lunched with me. I showed him Gertrudes portrait and he told me what was the matter with it. The men came and moved my stove and set the Franklin which I had previously decorated. The stove does not draw very well and I am afraid my arrangement will be a failure. I painted a little on Gertrudes picture and made it look more like her. This evening called on Miss Noxon and from there went to the Bristol to see the Boardmans. No one at home but Kate. Julia is in Havana and has become engaged there to a Mr. McKillan or such a name. Mr. Boardman was of course with his lady love Mr. Yevelin. From there to the Century where I was introduced to a Mr. Sayles from Boston who is one of a committee to get pictures for some exhibition at the Art Museum under the auspices of the Art Club.
