Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 13, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, June 13, 1888 My days here are uneventful. I go down town in the morning to the mail usually. Today I began a little picture of my mother from the photograph Lucy sent me but my work is most unsatisfactory. I feel now that any work which is not directly from nature is vain and unsatisfying.
