Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 11, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Mar 11, 1886 I felt very languid and sore this morning and it was with an effort that I got over to breakfast. Mary seems discouraged and depressed which makes me feel somewhat sober also. However my physical condition is a sufficient explanation for it. Mrs. Anderson called to see me somewhat alarmed at the idea of occupying so conspicuous a box at the Opera, but I reassured her. I painted a little but work is distasteful. Mary and I called on Mrs. Custer but she was resting and we did not disturb her.
