Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 24, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Dec 24, 1886 Down town to the mail. A letter from Bowyer and my felt had he got for me. Christmas presents for Sara from Alice and from Gussie [Putnam?]. Minters "England of Shakespeare" for me from Alice and a Christmas greeting from Joe Warren. Rainy and foggy all day. I was going to put up the sign on Chester St. today but it was not quite dry. Built a fire in my studio and painted two little sketches. Wrote to Bowyer. This evening Sara and I went over to Girards to see their Xmas presents for the children and when we returned arranged our presents to them. They brought their stockings over here today and we hung them up in the dining room and put in them what would go in and laid the remainder on the mantel piece.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
