Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 16, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Nov 16, 1887 Worked all day looking over my studies, selecting and measuring those I intend to put into my sale. In the evening Calvert and I went to see Robson & Crane in a play called "The Henrietta" at the Union Square Theatre. It was not very interesting to me. We went more particularly to see Lorry Stoddard who has the part of a young English Lord in it, but it is a senseless character, a caricature in which he has only to look stupid and say nothing. I dont get much pleasure out of such plays but the house was crowded and people seemed delighted.
