Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 16, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Jan 16, 1890 It was raining when I went to breakfast this morning but during the forenoon the wind shifted to N. W. and it grew rapidly colder. I have felt much better for the change although it is an effort for me to do anything. I stopped at Wilmurts this morning and paid him a hundred dollars on a/c. This afternoon I went around to John Rogers' in [?] St. to see his figure in clay of Elliott preaching to the indians. I thought it is a remarkably good figure, bold and spirited. The squaw had [?] of the pettiness of some of his small groups but the Indian I thought very good. To Dr Patchins as usual. Spent the evening at Marys. Came to my room early and wrote to Mrs. Weir, to whom I have not written in a long time.
