Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 8, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, May 8, 1882 Came down reluctantly by the noon train. I shall go home very soon now to stay. I am wretched here and presume I will be there. When I think that all my unhappiness comes from the lack of a little money it seems as though I ought to learn in some way how to sell my work for I am measurably happy when I can pay my way. On my arrival here found a bill from Dr Joslin for attending dear Gertrude in her last illness which it grieves me not to have been able to pay. I will pay it now. Attended the Council meeting. Hall has resigned as Treasurer of the Academy and sails for Europe Wednesday. Went to the club after Council and was just coming away when Eastman and Thompson came in. We staid until after 11 when Eastman came over to my room with me where we talked until nearly 2 oclock.
