Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 18, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Mar 18, 1887 Walked down the Bowery and bought some tools for Jimmy. The weather still windy and cold. Worked on my picture, Storm Clouds drifting off changing the rocks in the foreground, greatly to its advantage I think. Eastman called at six o'clock, the first time he has been in my new studio. He is hard at work on the hanging committee of the Academy. He and I dined at the Century as he was going back to the Academy to light up the galleries to see the pictures by gas light. I came to my room a little after 10.
