Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 8, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Jan 8, 1890 Went down to the office of Luke A. Lockwood, Booths attorney directly after breakfast to pay him the hundred dollars Miss Elliott paid me to be applied on her mortgage. I thought it would perhaps be well to make his acquaintance. I asked him about the last payment when I sent him the $600 mortgage as he asked Sharpe why no cash was sent. He told me he saw Booth in reference to that and said he "he has unbounded confidence in you for he told me to do anything you asked me to do." I told him I was sure of that and that was why I wanted to do all I proposed to." I was greatly gratified at this proof of Booths continued confidence in me and was glad I went down there. I went to painting on my water color as soon as I returned and worked on it until I went up to Dr. Patchins at 3.30. This evening I went to the Union Square Theatre to see Neil Burgess in the "County fair" and was much amused.
