Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 28, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Mar 28, 1888 Darley who died yesterday was one of the original members of our Mutual Aid Society. I painted on a picture 15 x 18 an effect of sky opposite the sun. I wanted to make a rich effect of color. Downing and I went to Dockstaders Theatre to see [?] in Arcadia. It was stupid and dreary in the extreme. I wrote to Mrs. Steele.
