Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 17, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Mar 17, 1888 Colder this morning. I went to the dentists at half past eight, and had a front tooth filled up under the gum and was tortured by the operation. From there I went to Wilmurts and ordered a frame for a small picture and then to the Academy to hang pictures, where I have been all day and tonight am tired and discouraged. I have not yet been paid the receipts of my sale. Ortgies told me Wednesday he would sent a check as soon as his book keeper, who had been storm bound at Orange, came in and I have heard nothing since. If they were not reliable men I should be uneasy, but as it is I want the money to pay some bills.
