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

Monday, Dec 18, 1882 Calvert and I came down by the early train getting our breakfast at Pokeepsie. I got to my studio and at work before Hubbard did from Brooklyn. Painted all day and began my larger picture. Girard came down and he and I went to Harrigan & Harts theatre. The performance was most vulgar and consisted of noise and Washington market squabbles yet the house was packed and the audience seemingly enjoyed it. We went to the Club a little while and then to my room. Girard staid with me, but I did not sleep well. I cannot accustom myself to sleeping with any one.
