Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, July 4, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, July 4, 1873- We went on a family pic nic out to the Fifth Binnewater. Fred Norton had put up a tent on the shore in a shady place where we had our dinner and we had a most charming time. There was a heavy shower on our way out but we managed to get under cover. Calvert had an attack of chills and fever and could not go.
