Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, November 20, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Nov 20, 1873- I painted a little winter sketch this forenoon from an idea I got on my walk yesterday and commenced another which I did not finish. We took a sleigh ride in the afternoon. Mary, Gertrude, Nannie, Julia and Lilie. We went out on the Flat bush road to where the river road turns off. The sleighing was beautiful, the weather grey and wintry and the whole country under the profound peace and silence of the snow, which still clings to the evergreens in great masses leaning many of them to the ground. They all came home to tea with us and with them Cornelia Ellis who arrived today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
