Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 22, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Apr 22, 1884 Spent an hour with my dentist Dr. Browne having a tooth filled. He wants to get one of my pictures and I am to paint one and take my pay in his professional services. Put a figure in my picture and painted on the foreground to advantage. Attended a meeting of the Art Union. Perry suggests a large Artists Club which I think might be an excellent idea. Mary, Calvert and I went to see Irving as Louis II. It was a most interesting performance. I think him a great actor. We had two dollar seats in the balcony pretty well back but saw and heard very well. Bram Stoker whom I saw at the entrance wanted to get me seats but I would not allow him. Went to the club a little while after the play.
