Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, September 24, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

It rains dismally. We have had rain half the time since we came here. The barometer has fallen greatly and there is every appearance of a long rain. I painted on my camp picture but it was so wet I had to stop. Wrote to Pell and in a letter to Sara. A dog came into the camp while we were gone fishing and remains with us. He has a wound in his head as though he had been shot. The Leycesters sail for England today.
