Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 14, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Apr 14, 1886 Recd a note from Miss Lacey formerly Geo. Thompsons wife asking me to send her ten dollars as she had had [?] where she expected to be today. I sent it to her by telegraphic [?] this morning. She used to live in Rondout and I was glad to oblige her as she seems to me a nice person and once spoke in my defense when [?], who boarded at the same home said something derogatory to me. I have painted another black & white sketch. Had a letter from Girard with [?]. He has seen Crosby and thinks [?]. Hubbard comes in and chews tobacco and spits in my coal scuttle to my great disgust. How can a gentleman do such things. Vanderliss called. He wants the picture I am to send to Detroit but I told him I wanted the money for it. I received the circular from the Detroit Museum of Art yesterday and today I sent my list to Hanna and Ives. Spent the evening at Marys and finished the "Prophet of the Great Smoky Mountains".
