Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 7, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Jan 7, 1890 The warm, close weather continues. I picked a flower in bloom on our side hill on Monday. Last night it was uncomfortably warm at the Century and today is the same. I went down to Fulton St. to order the furnishings for Miss. Robertsons sketch box. I also went to the bank on my way back and deposited $701. Mrs Jones check, 3 checks of Mr. Reed and $50 in money. I had some words with the clerk who writes up the bank books. He put on an overbearing air to me and I snubbed him. Began my water color and have got it well under way, but the paper does not work to my satisfaction. At 3. I went up to Dr Taylors and began my exercises, remaining until 5.30. I walked clear down to 18th St. from 59th St and was very tired. After dinner Mary and I went to hear Miss Edwards the Egyptologist on the origin of portrait art with the Egyptians. The great hall of the Cooper Institute was crowded and her lecture illustrated with calcium light was very interesting and very nicely delivered. Came to my room very tired. I get fatigued easily now.
