Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 20, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Jan 20, 1890 Went down town and had my hair cut. Left a check for [?] for his bill for insurance etc. against the estate of 89.58. The foundation of Mr. Jones house is finished and they are ready to raise it. I sent for a cab and came away by 11.55 train. It was raining. In the train were Tom Evans & his mother. Went directly to Dr. Patchins. After dinner, Mary, Calvert, Marion and I went to Dalys and saw "As you like it". We had front seats in the balcony. Ada Rehans father died on Saturday but she played, all the same. It seems he was a drinking man and I dare say his death was a relief to the whole family.
