Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 2, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Feb 2, 1884 At work on my large picture. At the Century in the evening. My studies seemed to excite considerable interest. I sold two of them to Mr. Auchincloss one for 150, a large tree and rock along the brook at Kellys Corners, and a study on the Delaware near the same place for $100. Marbury slipped coming down the stairs at the club this evening and broke his leg near the ankle. He had to be taken home in an ambulance and was carried out joking amid the applause of the Centurions over his pluck and good humor.
