Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 5, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Dec 5, 1887 The wind changed this morning and came out of the North with a great dark cloud under which the sun shone brilliantly over the December landscape, but it finally cleared and when I came away with the 11.55 train promised a fine fair day. Mrs. Osterhondt and Mrs. Hess were on the train. When I reached my Studio I found a note from Mrs. Custer asking me if I would care to go with her to the Nineteenth Century Club on Friday evening to which I replied I would be pleased to go with her. I sent a check for 4.57 to Devoe to settle my account and $50 to Mr. Rock on my bill of $140. Around to the club a little while in the evening to see the pictures. Nothing very interesting.
