Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 17, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Feb 17, 1880 Booth came and stood again for Benedick, the third trial. He was greatly depressed and alarmed on account of his wifes health. I think he fears he is going to lose her. I had a letter from Janette very kind and sympathetic and urging me to try to believe as she does that I may communicate with dear Gertrude. A sweet letter from Sara full of consolation and sisterly advice and help. Went to our drawing class in the evening.
