Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, June 3, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, June 3, 1873- Bowyer and I took the 7:15 train for Big Indian and walked from there to the head of the Neversink where we staid with Wm. S. Satterlee and fished until the morning of the 6th when we came home. It takes about 7 hours to walk from there to Big Indian. We did not catch a great many fish but brought home about 40 nice ones. We sent our things in by a team which left early in the morning. I blistered my feet badly walking over. When we arrived home I found a letter from Eastman Johnson enclosing a draft for $435 for the picture I painted for Mr. Morrill of Minneapolis. He seems very much pleased with the picture. I also received the papers from the Kingston Savings Bank relative to my mortgage and a letter from Mr. Culyer of the Brooklyn Park in answer to a note I wrote him before I left town.
