Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 4, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Jan 4, 1889 Sara came down this morning and came to my room. Booth sent me three tickets for the play tonight. I gave mine to Sedgwick and he and Sara and Marion went. I called on Mrs. Anderson and Miss Nesmith. I got half a ton of coal today expecting to go away Feb 1st. Stedman sent me a very cordial letter of introduction to Senora Bartlett van Glumer of Taenbaya a suburb of the City of Mexico. She was the subject of his Diamond Wedding in which he satirized her unmercifully many years ago but now they are warm friends.
