Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 27, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Apr 27, 1886 Calvert met Booth at the club yesterday and had a chat with him. He played Iago to Salvinis Othello to an immense audience last night at the Academy of Music. He told him he was coming to see me at 1 oclock today, but he did not come. He sent his man instead to tell me he could not come, that the tickets he had sent for had not come but that he would bring or send them in time. I called at Lily French's after dinner, about half past eight. The servant said she had retired. Went up to Eastman Johnsons. He was just going down to see Booth to try to get tickets for the play tomorrow evening. I remained a little while after he went and talked with Mrs. Johnson. Their servants all left a few days ago and they have a new lot, Catharine, the girl they have had for several years is married.
