Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 1, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Apr 1, 1888 A fine, bright Easter day. Mary, Sara and I went to hear Dr. [?] at the Universalist Church in 11th St. He preached an excellent and most interesting and touching sermon on the Resurrection. His theme was the existence in each mortal of a germ of the Divinity whence we sprang and that the least germ of good will ultimately triumph over the evil. The Misses Nichol [?] with and also Julia Dillon. While we were at tea Mrs. Youmans came in. She has spent the winter in California and arrived here the day before the Blizzard. I went around to the club. The talk was of Lawyer Marsh who lectures tonight on the spiritual pictures produced by Madam Dis Debar, which is the sensation just now.
