Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 13, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Feb 13, 1890 I went up to the Standard Theatre and bought tickets for this evening to see Dixey in the Seven Ages and walked down to 10th St. Col Tremper came about noon for me to go with him to the bronze foundry in 16th St to see the bronze statue of the Skirmisher for the Ulster Co. Monument. It was not in a favorable position to be seen but it was about what I expected, having seen the photograph. Lunched at the Century and worked the rest of the day on my picture. In the evening Calvert and I went to see Dixey in the Seven Ages. The theatre was full and we breathed all the evening the most villainous air possible. There seemed literally no ventilation. I thought the whole affair rather dull as the best thing would be under such conditions. I walked all the way down to my room to fill my lungs with fresh air.
