Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 29, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Apr 29, 1882 A little warmer and an attempt at sunshine. Went to the Academy to see Brown. He had had no offers for my picture. Met Mr. Clark there. He said he had seen Mr. Seney and hoped to get him up there on Wednesday or Thursday and perhaps at my studio. Told him to go in my studio at any time if I were not there. Feel wretchedly anxious and almost sick with worrying. Am going home today but I presume my anxieties will follow me there. Emerson died yesterday. A peaceful end to a wise and noble life. Gussie had letters from Maurice at Newport. Had been up to Boston and returned. She sent him some money but made a mistake about the postal order and he was in a great state of anxiety but they telegraphed him it would come the next day. Went home by 4 o'clock train. Jamie who had come home from school to spend Sunday, and Sedgwick met me at the ferry. Found my father much better and my mother improving.
