Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 21, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Apr 21, 1882 Painted all forenoon and in the afternoon went to Barnums show with Mary, Gussie, Lucy, Marion, Lily Taylor & Julia Dillon. As cold as winter again. I am in the depths. I think I never before felt so discouraged for my father and mother are both sick and I am in an agony of anxiety to know how we are to meet our necessary expenses the coming summer.
