Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 2, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Jan 2, 1886 Commenced a picture 30x36 and painted hard all day. It was so warm I took my coat off. There was a knock at my door and when I opened it there were four or five ladies. I invited them in and proceeded to put on my [coat?] [?] Julia Dillons perhaps for the last time as our teacher hopes to get something better to do. Went around to the club a little while. Was introduced to a young Englishman, a Mr. Bell who told me he had a letter of introduction to me from Bram Stoker and that he had called at my studio two months ago to deliver it but I was still in the Country.
