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

Sunday, June 13, 1886 Rained this forenoon and has been grey and chilly all day so that I put on my winter clothes. Calvert and [I] talked over affairs. After dinner I wrote to Mr. Kurtz from whom I had a letter last night telling me the Louisville people would pay the Art Union claim this month and urging me to send them a picture or pictures. I told him I would try to get the one from Detroit and the Winter from New Haven, and accordingly wrote to Weir and to Jay Smith the Art director at Minneapolis to release me from sending the Detroit picture if not sold. I also wrote Hanna & Ives to know whether the picture sold and if not when it would be returned. Calvert and I walked out back of the cemetery. I keep my mind on the rack about our affairs and am trying to know what is best to do.
