Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 16, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Dec 16, 1888 [McEntee mistakenly dates this entry Dec 15] Sedgwick, Jimmy and I walked over to the Roa-tina where they skated for an hour. There were a number on the pond, and a little of last Sundays snow still lingers. We got back about 1 oclock and had our dinner at 4. I talked with Sara about going to Mexico and to my surprise she not only made no objection but thought it would be well for me to go. She wanted me to think of it carefully but was inclined to think it a great opportunity. Sedgwick and I came down this evening, and did not get to our rooms until midnight. The winter quiet at home is most soothing to me and one dread of going away is that I will miss that. I am greatly troubled to know how to decide.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
