Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 13, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Jan 13, 1886 Went to Dr. Browns directly after breakfast to have my wrecked tooth treated. Am to go again tomorrow morning. Began a winter picture 12x20 a recollection of a sky I saw when I was home last. I think I have something promising in it. Gill called and told me he hoped to sell my little picture called an upland farm. He is to take that and my little Kaatskill brook and my Christmas even at $300 $300 and $750 respectively. I limited the Christmas at $500 nett. The only way to have these fellows sell ones pictures is to let them make a good sum. I dined with Mrs. Anderson and Miss Nesmith and spent a very pleasant evening. Mr. Anderson was away from home. The weather is very cold and there is good sleighing and today it has not [?] much in the sunshine.
