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

Thursday, Dec 28, 1882 Worked all day on my winter picture and am much interested in it. Col & Mrs. Sanford and his niece Miss McGregor called. Mrs. Sanford is a very interesting woman and she apparently enjoyed her visit. I showed her all the sketches I made out at Fort Halleck. Went up to Eastmans again to dine so that we could have a talk after dinner. Found Mrs. Johnson had invited two ladies, Miss Mullany a niece of Chas. O'Connor and Miss Chalfin and young Conway and Mr. Horn. I was in my ordinary dress still I did not mind. Mr & Mrs. Isham called while I was there. I had not seen them for years. Came home and wrote Sara that I could not go home on Saturday as there is a special meeting of the trustees of the Century that evening.
