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

Friday, Nov 5, 1880 Rained hard. Had my breakfast in my room. Yewell came in feeling pretty discouraged. Cant sell any thing. I tried to encourage him. Went to Marys to lunch and she and I went to see Holman Hunts picture of the "Shadow of Death". It is very interesting to me but not my idea of Art. In the evening attended a meeting at the Century to arrange for the memorial evening to Gifford. There were present of the committee Ward, Conant, Collins, Beard and myself. We arranged all the programme. An address by Weir, a poem by Stoddard, paper by Whittredge, poem by Stedman, paper by me and one by Hubbard if he will consent, and all to be printed in a memorial book. I dined with Ward at his mother-in-laws.
