Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 13, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Mar 13, 1890 In my room all day and painting on my brook picture, which with all I can do does not please me. There is a disagreeable quality pervading it and in what it consists I am not able to say. I wrote to Whittredge and sent a note to Kenneth Cranford telling him I found his and his wifes cards on my door on my return from home and hoped he would call again. I received a note from de Forrest saying Beard could remain in his studio if he would pay next years rent in advance and hereafter when he failed to pay in advance on Mar. 1st of each year he must vacate his studio. I called on the Stoddards to get some gossip about Hawthorne. Mrs. Stoddard was very pleasant but Dick was not talkative, still he was cordial. They struck me as growing old as we all are.
