Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 20, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Jan 20, 1888 The severe cold continues without abatement. John Johnston called. He said he had heard a few of us were supporting Mrs. Winter and he thought either his family or his uncles ought to do that and as his uncle did not he would see they did their duty. I went to see Brown who told me he we had paid her expenses up to Jan. 1 and that from that time her nephew would pay for her, but as he worked for a salary and had a family it would be hard on him. I called to see Johnston twice but he was out. Have worked all day cataloging my sketches. I arrange them in three classes. The best ones, the second class and those I consider worth nothing. In the evening I called up in 63rd St to see the [?] but they were out. Then I called upon Mrs. Weeks in 24th St and went to the club where I saw Collins.
