Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 22, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Apr 22, 1886 Beautiful warm day. I went around to the Academy of Music directly after breakfast to see about getting a ticket for Booth and Salvinis performance of Othello next week, but there was a long line of people half an hour before the office opened and such a greedy scramble and speculation even in places in line that I came away disgusted. The seats are 1.50, 3 and 4 dollars and I cant afford these prices particularly as I wanted to take Mary. I shall try to get simply an admission ticket at the time or not go at all. Have been at work on my woods paper, and have finished it. I made another illustration today which makes six in all.
