Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 29, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Dec 29, 1889 Spent the morning at Marys. Marion went up to Pokeepsie yesterday to visit Edith Wilkinson. Downing and I walked up to 43rd St. to see the new Century Club building which is up four or more stories except the front. It seems an excellent location. The front is 100 ft on 43rd St and I hope we are to have a pleasant building. We walked back to lunch after which I came over to my studio and wrote to Sara, also a note to Pinchot, one to Rush Hawkins telling him one of my pictures had arrived from the Paris Exposition with a hole in it and a note to Mr. Douty urging him to have the fire escapes put onto this building at once. Dined at Eastmans with Joe May whom I had not seen since just after his wifes death. Went up into Eastmans studio after dinner and saw several of his portraits which he is at work upon. He is full of orders and says he works hard but he spoke as if it was rather a treadmill business.
