Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, May 29, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Mr. & Mrs. Butterfield called this morning just after we had had breakfast and Lucy and John had gone out. They looked at all of my pictures and said they would think over which one they would like. I certainly hope they will take one of them. After they went I went up to Stuarts and bought two little parasols one for Louise and one for Edith Weir which I had sent to them by Express. I also bought a fan for Lily and sent it to her by Express. Then having received a letter from Sara I went down to the Powell and met my mother and Jamie and took them over to Mary's. Today I have painted a little on a small apple blossom picture and on Gertrudes portrait.
