Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 12, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Jan 12, 1882 Miss Teale and her friend called. These interviews are rather amusing and somewhat embarassing and trying to paint a picture to suit the ideas of two sentimental people whose conceptions of a picture are very vague is difficult. She however left a note in pencil to tell me to finish the picture, that she liked it and would take it. Emma Brace and Julia visited my studio. Attended a trustees meeting at the Century. Marbury at the supper table was in his talking mood and told some interesting reminiscences of Hicks the head of the sect of Hicksite Quakers. Began my Academy picture on my new canvas which I think I will like.
