Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 18, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, May 18, 1881 Painted on Gertrudes picture. Miss Hallowell called for pictures for Chicago. She explained the Lydian Art Gallery to me and convinced me it was no place to send pictures. I concluded to let her have my Academy picture and one of my Ashokan pictures. Miss Ford came. She looks very poor and half starved. I talked with her about Mrs. Lane and told her I would write to her which I did later at the Century. Called on Fred Sawyers wife and took her veil and a photograph of Gertrude but she is out of town. I left them with the hotel clerk. Went to the Century and Thompson introduced me to a Mr. Haskell of Boston.
