Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday September 26, 1879
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, September 26, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Very cold. Ice formed. Got up early and Gifford & wife left at 8 oclock with the two small birches. Fine morning. Sent letters to Sade, Gussie, Alice, Emma French, Mr. Pell. Just about starting for Togue to camp. George and I went to Togue, John going as far as the big Togue to carry a pack returning immediately to the big birch in which we all came over, Church & the ladies. About two miles from Trout pond to Big Togue and pretty hard walking over boulders and through a bog at Togue. George spent two hours building a raft on which we embarked for the round island where we camped. The dog was with us having left John to our disgust, to follow us. Cold in the night.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
