Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 19, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Dec 19, 1882 We had our breakfast in our room. Girard went out and I set to work to paint the sky in my Jersey picture. I have done a good days work and my picture promises well. Mr. & Mrs. Rossiter Johnson called. She is a distant relative of dear Gertrude and spoke of her with the greatest admiration. It is always a great satisfaction to hear so many people speak in such terms of her who was so worthy of admiration. They invited me to lunch with them on Thursday. Girard went home. Spent the evening at Marys with Julia Dillon and Janette who dined with us.
