Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, September 16, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Cloudy and threatening. The Leycesters left at 8 o'clock amid great demonstrations. John accompanied them as far as the dam. I gave them a letter to Booth. We went out in the big canoe and I caught a pickerel. After lunch painted the name on the large canoe "Isabel" after Mrs. Church. Laid in a sketch of the camp. Rained slightly towards evening.
