Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 5, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Sept 5, 1890 Warm and a very heavy thunder shower in the afternoon. I was down town in the morning to buy things for a ladies breakfast Sara is to give tomorrow. I called to see Sam but he had gone to N.Y. I hear all sorts of insinuations as to his credit but as they come mainly from his enemies I pay little attention to them. He said he would pay me $3500 Sept 1st but yesterday he proposed to pay me $2000 and $1500 on Monday which I told him would answer as well. I will accommodate him as far as I can. I had a long letter from Mr. Kauffman from Minneapolis. He had only just received my letter of the 15th and wrote me at length and very kindly but he will not be back to Washington until after the 20th. I sent Sams check to the Bank of the Metropolis yesterday to be placed to my credit.
