Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 5, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Apr 5, 1880 Attended Geo. A. Bakers funeral at Trinity Chapel. There was a very large attendance of artists and we walked into the church together immediately after the family. Many of the artists who were in their prime when I came to New York are gone. Kensett, Greene, Baker, Hayes, Irving, Gray and many more. My time will come before long but I do not shrink from it as I once did. The morning was bright and spring like, but dark and showery in the afternoon. I painted the sky over in my Indian Summer picture but felt sad and depressed. Attended the Council meeting in the evening. I wrote to Stedman about the article on Booth. He telegraphed me it would be impossible.
