Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 29, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Nov 29, 1880 Calvert and I came down by the noon train. The weather had moderated. I always leave home with sadness even though I hope to go back every week. If I can only have some success it will help me bear the separation from home. After dinner attended a Council meeting at the Academy. We passed a resolution requiring all contributors to the Exhibitions to send and remove their works at their own expense. Brown and Huntington had a hot passage at arms regarding opening the Art Museum on Sundays. Huntington is pretty conservative and Brown too belligerent. We staid there until after 11 oclock.
