Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 14, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Dec 14, 1886 I go down for the mail now every morning and thus get exercise which I might lack. Besides I come in contact with people and this is good for me. When I came back I went over to Chester St where Tom and Henry are at work. The tobogganists are at work on their slide and have begun a house opposite Mr. Woods. It was pretty cold and windy there this morning. A little after 10 I went over to my studio and finished a little decoration on the little present for Lucy and painted a small sketch besides. I also worked on a larger sketch I painted several days ago. The new arrangement for heating water on my stove came today and I put it in place. It is very satisfactory. Sade and I cracked some walnuts and picked out the meats for some little cakes she is going to send Lucy.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
