Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 12, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Mar 12, 1881 Went to the dentists to have my two teeth looked to which have troubled me since my cold. Thought it best to wait a while. Went up to see Reichardt. He has not sold my picture but is confident he can sell my pictures as many people have spoken to him about them. From what he said I think I need more depth of color and more affect of light and dark to make them popular. He seems a practical, reasonable man and I hope we may be of advantage to each other. Went home by Wallkill Valley my face troubling me very much. It rained when I started but was snowing at Rondout when I arrived and snowed several inches during the night. Found Julia Dillon on the train after we left Goshen. Tom met me at the junction and we drove her home.
