Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 11, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Jan 11, 1887 Walked down to the mail this morning and then went to my studio and painted until 3 o'clk on my picture, after which Girard and I went over to the Toboggan slide and I took my first ride. It was very inspiriting and we rode until 5 when I came home to dinner. This evening Sara and I went over and rode until half past 9. Mr & Mrs Cantine were there and she and others rode with us several times. I enjoyed it greatly and we came home healthily tired. The weather remains cold so that there could not have been a better winter for this sport. No news as yet concerning the little pictures and tomorrow is the last day for paying our taxes without extra expense. I still have 20 days and must do something in the mean time.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
