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

Wednesday, May 7, 1890 I made a sketch this morning, of the apple trees around the flag staffs, but a very unsatisfactory one. I always have a feeling of discouragement after making a poor sketch. It has been a cool day. Sara, Miss Sheffield and I went to the first concert of the philharmonic society this evening. It was very creditable and there was a good audience but not so large as it should have been. The truth is we are not a musical nor an intellectual people and therefore this society is a credit to those who have got it up. Hiram Romeyn was there and we spoke with him.
