Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 28, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Dec 28, 1888 Painted on my picture all forenoon and improved it. Mr. Wm Hubbard, his wife and sister-in-law came over this afternoon and Whittredge and I went to Hubbards room with them and looked over some of his studies rather hurriedly. We found more than we expected to but in a very neglected state. We advised them to keep the room until our committee made their selection of what they would sell. He has had a new lock put on the door and given the keys to Whittredge and me. I went to the theatre this evening with Alice. We saw Booth in the Fool's Revenge, a powerful piece of acting. He was called out three or four times at last with cheers. We also saw Booth in "Yuricks Love" which was well acted. The house was crowded and intensely interested. Booth sent me the tickets this forenoon but the seats were far back.
