Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 20, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Jan 20, 1880 Rained. Called on Gussie at the Brevoort House. She thinks Joe is getting along well. Called on Charlie Coleman and did some errands, looking in at Leavitts Gallery where Moore has a collection to be sold at auction. He has there my "Wings of the Morning" and the "Autumn Idyl" which he bought of me. But I am not in the mood of looking at pictures. Have been at work in the afternoon and kept up pretty well. Went to the Academy in the evening and drew from life, our beginning of the class. Jones, Loop, Yewel, Henry and I constituted the class. We all enjoyed it and were glad of the opportunity of study. A letter from Sara which I answered.
