Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 5, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Feb 5, 1884 Very icy this morning but has thawed all day. Running about doing many things and only got to work in the afternoon. The frame for my Woods picture came and suits it admirably. Wood saw the picture and said he thought it the very best thing I had ever done, but I dont think so. Shattuck saw it and said it was excellent and he had no criticism to make. While I was at work upon it in the afternoon Fuller came in and bought it for $800. I have felt all along that he wanted it but I was not very anxious to sell it at that price at which I offered it to him when it was only half done. I shall however be glad to have it go into the Academy sold. In the evening I took Marion to the Casino to see "The Merry Man" The house is very beautiful and the play amusing. Stopped at the Club and wrote to note to Miss Nesmith.
