Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 19, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Feb 19, 1890 Paid for the candelabrum for Lucy (21.70) of which Mary is to pay one half for her and Calvert and Sara and I are to pay the other half. Worked on my picture which is about done and in the evening called at Lockwood DeForests, but they were out, and I crossed the street and called on Fred and Annie Norton. I read, before dinner, Emersons essay on power. What a bugle blast it [is] almost driving one to some supreme effort.
