Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 29, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Feb 29, 1884 Bitterly cold. I think one of the coldest days of the winter. Did not work today as my head felt badly I think from breathing confined air at the Century last evening. Huntington is very sensitive and we robust ones suffer and sweat in consequence. Miss Mullany who was to come today did not appear. Went to see the Thatcher, Primrose and West minstrels at Niblos last night. Ben Knower, his wife and her sister occupied seats next me. It was somewhat amusing but they are no longer delineations of Negro character as they used to be.
