Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 30, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Apr 30, 1880 Awoke with a headache. Tried to paint on dear Gertrudes portrait but could do nothing. Had a letter from Sade trying to cheer and encourage me. Mary called with Miss Shank and Miss Collins. Some people from Denver called, Mr & Mrs. Ch[?] with a letter from Goodrich. Had to take champagne for my headache but it did not entirely cure it. However I came to my room shortly after dinner and went to bed and finally got to sleep without one of my distracting attacks. I think I shall at last outgrow these headaches as I have them much less frequently than I used to.
