Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday December 26, 1886
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 26, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Dec 26, 1886 It snowed today with every indication of a prolonged storm but partially cleared. It was colder this morning 8 degrees above zero. This evening it is snowing again and I hope will restore the sleighing which was pretty well spoiled by the rain yesterday. I wrote Bowyer and sent him the text for a little advertising pamphlet of our lots for sale. Have attended to many little duties. Girard came over this afternoon and we went over to my studio to get some card board for some mats for engravings he is framing. I showed him some of the little pictures without telling him what they were for. He admired them and said he thought I would be sure to sell them. Poor old Park is suffering from something like asthma and goes wheezing about. I do not know what to do for him. He only seems uncomfortable but is not ill and eats his food as usual.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
