Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, December 26, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Dec 26, 1873- Downing and I drove down to Steep Rocks this morning to see if we could get Bill Still to go pickerel fishing. We made an arrangement with him dependent upon getting bait. We were to visit him at 2 o'clock in Jacobs Valley to catch minnows. After dinner we walked up there. It had begun to snow and he did not come as he said there would be no use if it stormed and we came home. It has snowed fast all afternoon and is still snowing as we go to bed. We spent the evening and took tea at Uncle Charles and had a pleasant time.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
