Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, September 26, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Got up at 5 1/2 & George & I went fishing on the raft we made yesterday afternoon up to the place where Gifford caught large trout last year a mile by water. Could not get a ride. Returning stopped at the mouth of the brook where we built the raft and caught three large ones, caught 2 at once the largest one 18 inches long--saw two caribou swimming in the lake. After they got out some distance turned and came back.
