Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 15, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Feb 15, 1881 Bunner called and in discussing the selling of pictures he told me of an arrangement he had made with Richardt and thought I could do something with him. We went together to see him but he was out and we are to go again tomorrow. Swain Gifford called to see about sending a picture to the Royal Academy. Wilcox of Philadelphia called. He asked about dear Gertrude and was shocked when I told him she was no more. He had never heard of her death. It gave me a great shock too, to know how little we know of each others sorrows. Averys daughter was married this evening. I would have gone but Mary with whom I was to go went to Rondout today with Cornelia Ellis who has just left the hospital and as I was not well I did not feel equal to going alone. I went up and spent the evening with Eastman Johnson to talk with him about his sister Hatties death. I am not feeling well.
