Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 25, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Mar 25, 1886 Do not feel like painting. I have worked a little each day on the little portrait of dear Gertrude belonging to her mother and I hope to have made it more like her but am not sure. Sara and I called at Miss Noxons but she was not at home so we went on up to Eastman Johnsons where Sara had never been and spent the evening very pleasantly. Eastman took us up to his studio and showed us the portrait of Bishop Potter he is painting and which he says does not go on as successfully as he could wish. They invited us to dine with them tomorrow evening.
