Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, August 7, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Pic-nic at Leggs Mills for Bowyer and King Putnam. A splendid day after the rain and the affair a great success. I rowed down to the head of the Glen Erie Falls with Gertrude, Maurice, Mrs. Van Deusen and Miss Fanny Lee. We stopped at Ten Broeck Sharps place, a charming situation but the house deserted. Farm sold on a mortgage. The day was an ideal one.
