Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 23, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Apr 23, 1881 Hubbard and I called on Prof. Weir. He paints every day and seems hale and vigorous. His pictures are not strong but it is something to retain ones interest at his age. Mrs. Hawes nee Addie Drinning called. The first time I have seen her in many years--a widow now with six children. She had her little girl with her. Seeing Gertrudes portrait standing on one of the frames she said "Oh there is Mrs. McEntee. How is she" Had never heard that she is dead. Went home by 4 oclock train, Jamie Andrews who is home for his Easter vacation met me with the wagon. Sade sick with a head ache.
