Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 12, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Mar 12, 1880 Am still in the dentists hands. Sleighs were running in the streets last night. Sheldon of the Post called on me today to see the Booth pictures. He would like to write an article for Harper and have the series engraved. I told him I would speak to Booth about it. Miss Legget called to get me to sign a paper endorsing her reading room for ladies and gentlemen which she proposes to open in 5th Avenue. Coast brought in a lady and gentleman from Colorado. I sent my Autumn Morning on the Delaware to Buffalo price $500. Mary and Gussie went out to Montclair today and brought Cornelia back with them. She staid at Marys. I called to bid Gussie and Joe good bye. They are going to Hillsboro on Monday.
