Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 30, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Mar 30, 1888 Painted Calverts picture of Lake Placid which he is going to give to Leta Brace for a wedding present. Mr Squire and Capt [blank] from Auburn called about the picture I am to let them have for an exhibition. Mr. Squire said Howland wants me to come and make him a visit. They live very nicely have plenty of money and no children and he would make it very pleasant for me and would want me to paint him pictures of their scenery. If I were sharp I would go, but I dont much like this sort of thing.
