Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 21, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Mar 21, 1888 To the dentists. It rained in torrents just before I went to breakfast and has rained all day. All day at the Academy. Tomorrow we will I think finish the hanging. This would have been our dear fathers [?] birth day had he lived. Lucys photograph of our mother, the best one we have of her came today from Fort Bridger safely. I am to use it in painting a portrait of her this summer I hope. Went to the Bijou to see the "Pearl of Pekin" [?]
