Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 11, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, May 11, 1888 A letter from Weir wanting to know if I know of any exhibitions where he can send pictures. Says he is in a tight place. I wrote him immediately and told him I was going to send to Minneapolis and to the Art Institute of Chicago. Hall called. He has been ill. It has rained all day. I went up in the afternoon and called on Bierstadt. He is painting a Buffalo hunt, a large picture. He showed me interesting photographs taken on the Canadian Pacific railroad. Said he would like to go there but I think he dont quite know any more than I, what he will do. Dined at the club.
