Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 9, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Mar 9, 1886 Slept badly and awoke feeling pretty well used up. My cold is at its height and I am as miserable as possible. Downing came to see me. Have sat in my chair all day trying to keep warm which seems almost impossible to do. I tried to paint a little but I did not seem equal to the least effort. Spent the evening at Marys and read a part of Buells account of the battle of Shiloh in the Century. Coming to my room I found a box for tomorrow night from Mrs. Thurber for the "Merry Wives of Windsor" and one for "Lakme" Friday night. Wrote to Sara.
