Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 4, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Feb 4, 1886 Bitterly cold. Directly after breakfast Sara and I went up to the Water Color Exhibition and remained all morning. I left before she did and came to my studio and then went down town to Deslins[?] to buy an overcoat. Not finding what I wanted I rode up to Brooks in Broadway where I bought one but it was not exactly what I wanted. Came back to my studio and got Mr. Auchincloss pictures ready to send him and also my picture "A glimpse of Hunter Mountain" for the Century. Directly after dinner we all went up to Julia Dillons and called on Mrs. Tuckerman and her daughter and then Sara and I went to see Dixie in Adonis which we both greatly enjoyed. At 3 oclock Sara came to my studio and we went up to 25th St and called at Mrs. Thurber who was out as she is most of the time. Then we went over to Mrs. Wheelers, this being her and Dora's reception day. She was very cordial. We met Mrs. Cortlandt Palmer there and Mrs. Wheeler took us down to her apartment and showed us the beautiful stuffs[?] and embroideries. We were there more than an hour and had a cordial reception.
