Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 27, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Dec 27, 1889 The wind blew a gale all night and this morning it was much colder when I went over to breakfast. I had not seen Mary since she left our house last August, I think. She has been visiting Julia for a month. Harry is in town and he, Mary and I breakfasted together. I have not seen him in a year and a half. I began a winter picture today on a canvas 30x36 and painted in the objects leaving the Canvas to represent the snow which seems the exact tint. I am much interested and hope to make a good picture. Wood came in and seemed to like it. I find my picture belonging to Eno which he lent me to send to Paris has a small hole in it and I shall have to get it lined. Spent the evening at Marys.
