Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 25, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Mar 25, 1880 We concluded the hanging of the pictures at the Academy last night near midnight and I have been up there this morning to see the thing completed. The Harpers are there to photograph some of the pictures for the Weekly but it was doubtful if they could do any thing on account of lack of light. This whole thing has been a severe tax on me and I wish I could have escaped it. I know we have done our duty carefully and without prejudice and yet we need not expect to escape without severe criticism. I am ready to take what comes. Dined at Eastman Johnsons with Whittredge, Gifford and Charlie Coleman.
