Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 4, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Dec 4, 1880 Began to repaint my picture of Waste Places just returned from Chicago which looked black and uninteresting when Joe Tubby came in. He staid two hours but I worked meanwhile. Julia Dillon came shortly after he went to tell me she had heard from Sara and that my picture which I gave her for her fair had been drawn by Mrs. John L. Hasbrouck. Went to the Century monthly meeting. Did not have a very good time. My picture looked very well and was pretty well liked I think, but I felt discouraged and so could not enjoy the evening. I came to my rooms about midnight feeling very forlorn and discouraged and slept but little all night.
