Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 20, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Jan 20, 1889 Very cold this morning. After breakfast I came to my room and spent the day until 4 o'clock doing many things as for instance making out a list of painting materials to take with me to Mexico, mending my trunk, marking my new valise, writing to Alice and to John Kraft for information for Ward about the State Game Preserve in Ulster Co. Fred Norton came in for a while. He gave me permission to let Joe Cornell have his picture of the Cliff in place of the one he is going to loan me for the Paris Exposition. At 4 o'clock it had begun to snow in earnest. I walked over to the "Players" for a short stop before dinner. Saw Mr. Benedict there. I understood Booth was to be there today stopping on his way from Baltimore to Boston but I did not see or hear of him. I wrote a note there to Inness congratulating him that foreign art dealers should buy his pictures. [Clipping included on Inness selling to representative of a French dealer through the interest of Benjamin Constant.] After dinner I went around to the Century where I staid until 10 o'clock and then came to my room it still snowing violently.
