Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 23, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Dec 23, 1881 Jamie Andrews, Jimmy McEntee and I went after a Christmas tree and some laurel, through seas of mud, out to the place where I always go on the cross road between the Flat-bush and Pine bush roads. It rained a part of the time and turned into a snow storm on our return and was about as disagreeable day as could be. Little Jimmy was nearly frozen and we were all glad to get home with our load. A letter from Royal Reed telling me he had sent some more partridges and some little Christmas presents from Mrs. Sawyer and Alice.
