Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 1, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Jan 1, 1886 Came to my room and worked on my water Color. Presently Henry Abbey called and spent half an hour and shortly after he went Harry Donaldson called. He had been to Boston to attend an annual gathering of scientists. I was very glad to see him for he is an admirable young man. Mr. Vanderliss called while he was here. Calvert and I dined alone and after dinner went up and called on Julia Dillon to see a screen she has been painting for Annie Norton. It was very cleverly done and showed a good deal of taste. Fred Norton came in while we were there. He had been up to Montreal and was greatly pleased with their winter sports. I went around to the club and met Collins and Edgar Ward. Later Nash came in and joined us. We talked of the removal of the club. Avery has some lots which would be suitable but he has grown so rich and fastidious that he does not want them occupied. I can remember when he was less particular.
