Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 12, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, May 12, 1888 Mrs. Irving came to see me to sell some trifle. I had a talk with her and found out that her second husband Pickett is a man hardly able to take care of himself and does nothing for her support, and yet she seems attached to him. From what she said she has no home and I hardly know how she lives. I asked her if she would like to do something and she said she would, could take care of children of whom she is very fond. I have written to Miss Nesmith to see if she can suggest anything. While she was here some ladies called but I had to tell them I was engaged and asked them to come later which they did. Went home by 4 o'clock train and went from Jay St. The sail up along the city was very pleasant. Bowyer was to go on this train but did not. He went by H. R. train at 3.30.
