Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 21, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, June 21, 1881 Cool and autumnal. Emma Brace sat for me to paint the little head dress in dear Gertrudes portrait. She, Julia, Marion, Jamie and I took a walk on the Common after tea. I have had a feeling of discouragement over our affairs today and had to write to Calvert about some money he owes me. I wish I was not obliged to speak of it for he was always so helpful to me. I told him not to put himself to any trouble, that I would rather manage some other way. Letters from Mrs. Sawyer and Alice.
