Belle Skinner Journal Wednesday, September 28, 1887


Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Today we have spent entirely at the Louvre “doing” the paintings.  They are beautiful.  Of course we saw Murillo’s Immaculate Conception, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Guido Reni’s Ecce Homer, and many by Raphael and Rubens, all very very beautiful.  In the Jewish Room we saw the famous Moabite Stone, on which is inscribed the fourth chapter of Second Kings, and from which we have the language of David.  Also the actual cover to David’s tomb, and the jar in which Christ turned the water into wine.  We received a telegram from Father saying that he had reached Lyons safely.
