Friday, Dec 14, 1888 [McEntee mistakenly dates this entry Dec 13] Bitterly cold. I am wondering if Sara can keep warm with the new hall stove. Sedgwick is going up with the 4 o'clock train today and I expect to go with the 11 oclock, tomorrow. I have been painting all day on Mr. Welles picture and am getting it well along. I hope I shall be able to send it to him before Christmas. Called on the Churches at the Brevoort. They are both pretty poorly. He urges me to go to Mexico with him and says he cannot go if I do not. I told him much as I would like to it was impossible, but he says he will see me again on Monday.
