Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, June 25, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, June 25, 1872- H. K. Brown wrote me a few days ago to know if I would go fishing with him. I wrote him on Saturday to come on at once. Haven Putnam who would have gone with us waited until this morning and not hearing from him he left for Stockbridge. I received a letter shortly after he left from Mrs. Brown saying my letter of Saturday did not get there until Monday and meanwhile Mr. Brown had gone away to be gone until the last of this week. Putnam and I would have gone up to the Adirondacs for a couple of weeks if I had known this this morning. It has rained all day a soft gentle rain which was much needed. On Sunday I wrote to Lucy, finished a letter to Downing, one to Mrs. Wheeler and also wrote to Dr. Ellis sending him check for his bill and to Dr. Joslin sending him a check for $100 on account. Mary went home this morning and Marian went with her. She could not make up her mind to remain here and let her mother go home without her. I commenced today to read Taylors translation of Faust.
