Jervis McEntee Diaries
Monday August 4, 1873
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, August 4, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, August 4, 1873- Bowyer and I walked down to the boat immediately after breakfast intending to go down the river to be gone all day. The wind blew strong from the north however and we went up the creek instead. We fished awhile under the dam at Eddyville with but little success and came back slowly to Steep Rocks reaching home a little after six. I found a letter from Gertrude written on Saturday and a postal card from her wanting to know why I did not write when in fact I have written every three or four days.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
