Monday, Dec 17, 1888 [McEntee mistakenly dates this entry Dec 16] Raining violently. Talked with Calvert and Mary about Mexico. They both are rather inclined to advise me to go. I went to [Vantines?] and got a present for Tom & Minnie and to Johnstons in 14th St where I got scarfs for Katy and Tracy and coming to my room went to work to finish Husteds picture. Spent the evening at Marys.
