Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 26, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Oct 26, 1886 I sent my two pictures, "Autumn fields" and Evening to Wilmurt today to go to the Fall Exhibition at the Academy. Have done a little of everything today, mended the gutter, sorted some apples and at noon Henry came and he and Tom put up the hall stove and Saras stove. It began to rain a little while they were bringing them in and now 10 oclock it is raining hard with the wind from N. I drove up to the station for Sara at 7. It rained smartly when she arrived. Some art notices in the "World" mentioned David Johnson with great praise as painting in the style of Diaz and Rousseau. That satisfies most people, the feeble following of successful men.
