Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 23, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Feb 23, 1886 The weather is cold and blustery again. I have painted all day on two or three of my pictures. Whittredge came in and made me a long visit. Spoke very pleasantly of my pictures and was very genial and friendly. Wanted me to go out home with him and spend tomorrow there. Ross Turner called. I had a very pleasant interview with him. Spent the evening at Mary's. Harry Donaldson came on from Baltimore today and spent the evening with us. They with Mr. Donaldson sail for Germany tomorrow at 10 o'clock. Found a note from Weir inviting Sara and me up there for a visit. I wrote him this evening. Also an invitation from Mrs. Clearwater to attend the meeting of the Knickerbockers next Monday evening which I declined.
