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

Friday, Feb 22, 1884 A bright, beautiful day and a public holiday. The funeral of the lost Arctic explorers took place. I repainted the sky in my cliff picture. Dined with some of the Artists at Martinelles after which a few of us went to the club and had an interesting talk. Got to bed late. Wrote to Mr. Gordon in acknowledgement of his generous gift.
