Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 27, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, May 27, 1890 It was raining this morning but cleared off finely in the afternoon. I went down town after dinner and got a letter from Eastman Johnson wanting me to come down soon to dine with him, Charlie Coleman[,] Millet & others. He writes that Geo. Butler has found a valuable bed of iron ore on his farm and has made a contract with a Pittsburgh firm for 20 years at $5000 pr year and a royalty besides. That is good luck for an Artist and must make the future look rosy to him. A note also came from Mary saying besides Sedgwick, Calvert and Downing may be up on Thursday evening to spend Decoration day.
