Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 1, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Feb 1, 1882 In the afternoon I began a Nevada picture from my study in Star Valley and am greatly interested in it. In the morning I went with Calvert to see Tildens house. The details of the carving in wood and stone are charming and I think Calvert has shown unusual ability in it. Then we went up to the Water Color Exhibition and I looked at the pictures in the North Room. In the evening Mary, Calvert and I with Mrs. Putnam and Ruth dined at Mrs. Taylors and afterwards went to Mrs. Goddards party. We had a very pleasant time because we knew most of the people and the rooms were not crowded. Emma Brace was there but there were only a few young people.
