Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 10, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Mar 10, 1888 The day was spent at the Academy selecting pictures and at night I was very fatigued. Called at Fred Nortons where Sara had dined and asked Fred to the club with me where we staid until 12 oclock. Haney Ludlow who dined on Friday was stricken down at my sale and carried out helpless. He was an old school friend. My friends generally are surprised at the result of my sale. I think I ought to have got more money, but I shall have to make up my mind that I am never to be free from money anxieties as long as I live.
