Jervis McEntee Diaries

Saturday January 2, 1875

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Saturday, January 2, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

It snowed a little this morning. I took a walk around by the Alms House and found it very difficult walking and besides got pretty wet as the snow turned to sleet while I was out. After I came home I went to work at my picture and corrected the perspective which occupied me all day. Now I am sure it is right. Uncle Charles spent the evening with us. Tonight the wind is blowing a gale from the N.W. Let my father have all the money I had in the bank $130 to pay his taxes.
