Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 18, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Apr 18, 1882 Whittredge called. He is in trouble just as I am and worried about his affairs. Still he has a large order and has sold some pictures and cannot be in as bad a fix as I am. He spoke very encouragingly about my pictures and said I never painted better, made some good suggestions and painted on my picture. Wilmurt called. Booth came and staid half an hour. He has a bad cough and says he never feels really well. Asked me how I was getting along and I told him just how troubled I was. He has his troubles too. McVicker he tells me keeps writing him insulting letters and he has worries in connection with his wifes affairs. Recd. a letter from New Orleans in which Mr. Day tells me he got the price of my picture from Rinner and that they had no other price to go by. Went to Bishop Putnams wedding at Colyers Church with Gussie, Marion and Edith Rood. Mary and Edwina went together in a coupe. Dined with the G. B. Club at Pursells, their last dinner this year.
