Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, July 18, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, July 18, 1873- Mary received a letter from Downing. He and Loring Brace had made the journey from Long Lake to Placid Lake about 50 miles leaving their boat at the Lower Saranac.
