Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 17, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Mar 17, 1881 Painted on a picture of a Shokan brook which I attempted to make a picture of last year. Skinner came in the afternoon and asked me to go to the Union Square Theatre to see Clara Morris in Conscience. There is much that is good in her acting and she often moves me powerfully which is my test of good acting. Mrs. Roweyn called while I was out as did Mr. Howells who left me a check for $400 for my picture and the study. Calvert and I went around to the club in the evening, the first time I have been there for weeks.
