Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 15, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Jan 15, 1887 Walked down to the mail and got a letter from Bowyer. He could not come up today as he is very busy. Says a lady wanted a little picture and wants me to send him four or five. Says he has faith in our venture and thinks it is not time yet for the advertisement to have effect. Went over to my studio and painted on the picture with the large Sycamore tree a study of which I made last fall at Arkville. I am beginning to feel that I will have to go to New York before long but shall wait to hear about the studio. It has been mild today but tonight is colder with the wind N.
