Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 24, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Jan 24, 1890 The weather remains wintry. Have painted a little on my small winter picture and spent a part of the day clearing and cleaning my chest of drawers and book shelf. My room is not half taken care of and as I am unable to get things done properly I do them myself to avoid trouble. I understand our housekeeper is to leave in the spring and I will try to stand it until then. She is totally unfit for the place and we are all tired of her. Went to Dr. Patchins as usual which sadly interferes with my day. Called at Fred Nortons this evening. Gertrude Tremper is visiting there. They invited me to dine with them on Wednesday to meet Mrs. Boorman Johnston and one of her daughters. This is my mothers birth day.
