Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 25, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, May 25, 1881 Painted on the little picture of Gertrude. I began it with umber & white and shall see what I can do in this way. Went to the Strand after dinner to see about my trunks which did not arrive with the rest of my baggage. Walked down to the Point to pay for some cigars and home by the upper road. It was extremely hot and I almost feared a sun stroke. The hot weather uses me up completely. We sent Maurice money this evening to come home. Had a letter from him & one from Dr. Day saying he had better take the place
