Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 17, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Feb 17, 1886 The weather is colder again. Have painted today on my winter picture and improved it. Went to a reception given to Thos. Moran who is going to have an auction sale of his pictures. He has an interesting and creditable collection and a large number of people came to see them and seemed greatly interested. Afterwards I went around to the club. Saw Eastman at Morans, a little provoked I had not been to see them. I explained that I was patiently waiting to hear when they would see me. Wrote to Sara this afternoon. I went up to the theatre this morning and got Marions muff and being near Dr. Hasbroucks I went in, took the gas and had a troublesome root of a tooth extracted without a pang, as I wrote Sara until I put my hand in my pocket and paid two dollars for the luxury.
