Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 28, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Apr 28, 1882 Painted on my large picture of "Falling leaves" and improved it very much. Whittredge came in telling me he had been down town to see Mr. Seney but he was so busy he could not get near him. He says however he will try to see him. Mary and I called up at the Romeyns and from there we went to Eastman Johnsons. He had heard from the Portland man for whom I painted the wood interior as a background for the portraits of his children and he dont want it, about as I expected. Every thing goes wrong with me this winter. Sara came down this afternoon and went to the theatre to see Booth in the Fools Revenge with Marion who had Booths box and invited a number of her young friends.
