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

Thursday, Feb 5, 1880 Came back to N.Y. by 11 oclock train, leaving home very reluctantly. It seemed to me I would like to hide myself there away from every body and give up this lonely and unequal struggle, but I would be unsatisfied there as I am every where, for there is much anxiety there too. Went to the lecture on Anatomy at the Academy in the evening and from there to a meeting of the trustees at the Century. Mrs. Stoddard came to see me in the afternoon and I had a long sympathetic talk with her.
