Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 8, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Apr 8, 1887 The weather is not warm. The grass is just showing a faint tinge of green in the parks. I painted over the sky in my Winter and have been over the whole picture. I think it is better but still not what I want. I went into Hubbards room today where Mr. Furlong introduced me to a Miss Hanna and they came to my room with me. She seemed a bright but gushing young woman and as Hubbard afterward told me is from Kentucky. I called on Julia and Miss Tuckerman this evening. Went to the Academy for a short time this morning. I see the pictures of such men as Insley sold and wonder and am all astray as to what people really like. Was at the club where there are generally several of the artists.
