Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, August 6, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wrote to Gussie Sunday. Yesterday a curious foggy atmosphere prevailed all day. Today we have had frequent and heavy showers. This afternoon a great black cloud swept over us from the West promising a tornado but it only gave us a heavy rain. Bowyer, Grant Van Deusen and King Putnam arrived from Alpine in their canoes. They left there Saturday. I have finished the wagon. Wrote to Booth to come and make us a visit any time this month with his wife and Edwina. Received a letter from Miss Durfee yesterday asking me to send a picture to Pittsburgh, suggesting the one she has at her room "The Year Smiles etc." Wrote her to do as she pleased about sending it.
