Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 10, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Jan 10, 1889 I went to a reception this afternoon and Mrs. Dyers with Alice, Sara, Marian & Helen Rood to meet Mrs. Joy and her two daughters. I had not seen Mrs. Dyer in many years and she had aged very much. I met Mr. Meyer the engineer in 5th Avenue this afternoon. He looked really feeble and yet it seems not a long time ago that I knew him as a young man. Still it was forty years ago. In the evening Marian, Sara, Alice and I went to a concert of the Metropolitan Musical Society in the Opera House which was entirely filled with people and all the tickets were complimentary. I stopped at the club on my way to my studio to get some oysters.
