Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Not Now

[Sarah Newton Bogel]

Description:

In this photograph, a young woman in a long, white dress decorated with ruffles and wearing a matching bonnet and gloves is posing for a portrait. She appears to be standing on a very small flight of stairs (only two or three) next to an intricately carved wooden railing. Her right hand is stretched out to hold a basket of flowers perched on a carved post at the top of the stairs. In the background there is a tree outside a window, and a wall decorated with carvings and climbing ivy. On the back of the photograph, a handwritten note reads, "Mrs. W. W. Bogel (Sarah Newton) about 1876 probably in San Antonio."
