Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 17, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Mar 17, 1887 St. Patricks day, still cold and windy. I received a note from Selstedt asking me if I would take $325. for my Ashokan Brook for the Buffalo Art Association. I wrote him I would accept the offer as it was to go into the collection of the Art Academy although I thought it was worth all I asked for it. I finished reading the adventures of Tartarin the Lion Hunter which is very amusing. Went around to the club. Bradford and Champney came in from Bliss Bakers sale, which they announced as a great success. His picture of Morning after the Snow was bought by Altman for $5,000. The sale brought about $23,000 I understood. I was in Casilears Studio this afternoon. He mixed some seconite for my cold which I took every 15 minutes for two hours and felt greatly relieved before I went to bed.
