Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 30, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Oct 30, 1880 Spent a part of the forenoon fixing the plank walk to the coal cellar. A rainy day. Went to my studio and painted all day a part of the time on my little husking scene and a part of the time on a portrait of dear Gertrude I am painting for her mother. This evening was to have taken place a great Republican parade with delegations from all the country round, but the rain is pouring and of course nothing could be done. A letter from Beard.
