Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 17, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Dec 17, 1886 Walked down town and put an advertisement of the Chester St. lots in the Freeman to be inserted on the first page once each Saturday for 3 months for which I paid $7. I walked up to see the progress of the new toboggan slide. It was pretty cold but bright. I wore my patent ice creepers and when I reached home found I had lost one of them. I went over to my studio and worked until 3 o'clock painting a little morning landscape from one of my sketches at Arkville. Am worrying a little over my note which comes due the 27th. There was another of the exasperating notices of the Academy exhibition in the Tribune today.
