Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, August 23, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

John, Girard, Maurice and I drove to Martins where we left the team and spent the day fishing on the creek. One of the same lovely days of which we have had so many this month. John caught a 1 1/2 or 2 lb bass. Girard a smaller one. I hooked a big one twice but lost him. Had supper at Martins and got home at 9 well tired but having thoroughly enjoyed the day. Martin told us of chubs 20 inches long caught there and said by a day or two notice he would get live bait and go with us. So there is a bolster to our faith. A nice letter from Booth in which he says he had such a pleasant visit here.
