Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 6, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Jan 6, 1886 Colder today. Towards evening began to snow. Have painted all day on my picture but it needs force and I am rather bothered with it. Fuller called. Parton came in to see my water color and seemed to like it. Calvert is in trouble for the lack of money as I am for that matter and it makes me miserable to see him so worried and abstracted. I wish I could help him, or myself for that matter. I met Lily French in Union Square this morning. She told me she had been in town since October and that she was engaged in newspaper work on the Star, she said she was going to move into her flat that day, that Mrs. Weir was with her, she would be glad to see me and she gave me her address. I called up there this evening but could get no response and left my card. The wind blew from the N. W., and it was very cold. I walked up and back to my room where I read two of Sir Johnsons' lectures and then went to bed.
