Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 19, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Mar 19, 1888 All day at the Academy. My account of sale and check for the balance due me came from Ortgies & Co this afternoon $4,978 exclusive of $750 advanced to me. Calvert and I went around to the club to hear Muybridges lecture on the locomotion of animals. I met Eastman there and an old friend of his a Mr. Campbell who was consul at Rotterdam while Eastman was in Holland. I am very lame, unusually so it seems to me and it gives me great trouble. A letter came from Lucy who had just received mine telling her about my sale. It did not realize her hopes but she made the best of it.
