Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 27, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Apr 27, 1888 Mrs Lord and I came to town by the 10 20 [?]. I had a delightful visit and renewed and strengthened, I hope a pleasant acquaintance. Received a letter from Maj Wilkinson telling me I might nominate him for the Century as I had proposed to him and naming Weir and Elihu Root to second him, to both of whom I wrote. Began a little picture 12x15 based on one of my Arkville subjects. I sent my just completed picture "A Mountain Stream" to Stevens' collection at the "Crescent" 5th Avenue. Spent part of the evening at the club, where I wrote to Lucy.
