Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 5, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Jan 5, 1882 The weather continues cold and I am glad of it. Edwina arrived this morning and breakfasted with us. Booth had to go to Lawrence Huttons to breakfast and so I have not seen him. Painted until 2 oclock on Miss Teales picture when Skinner came in and asked me to go to the Union Sq. Theatre to see Clara Morris in the "New Magdalen" which I did. It is one of the watery plays but still interesting and she is an interesting woman. Pinchot came in last night just as I was going out to dinner to invite me to go up to dine with him but as Downing was to come to my room I declined. I am to go there to tea on Sunday. A long letter from Lucy giving me a full account of all her Xmas doings which was most interesting to me. The violin arrived in good order except that the box was broken and Sedgwick was very delighted and is trying to learn to play. Went to the club a little while and wrote a letter to the Committee for Hutton then to my room where I braided bark for an hour or more. A note from Miss Nesmith telling me she will come to lunch tomorrow.
