Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Sunday, August 2, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Aug 2, 1874- Calvert, John McEntee, Reed & I went to Mr. Marion. It was a magnificent day and I never saw the Kingston Valley look finer. The skies were incomparably fine and we saw showers and grand effects in all directions. A thunder bolt discharged near us at the foot of the mountain giving us each a slight sensation of a lightning stroke. We enjoyed the day exceedingly.
