Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 23, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Nov 23, 1886 Went down town directly after breakfast. It was raining and has rained all day. Have worked in my studio all day and painted three sketches, one a sky I saw last night. I am enjoying this season of quiet and uninterrupted work as it did not seem possible a few weeks ago I could enjoy it, but I am busy and hopeful and if I am to be disappointed I shall have gained this respite. Then men did not work on Chester St. today.
