Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 25, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, July 25, 1880 Wrote to Mr. Bachelder that I thought I would like to go with him and asking him to tell me just when he expected to go. Wrote a long letter to Sara. Charlie Nicholls was down today. They had found poor little Henry Myers body and his father had arrived. Poor child. I cannot get him out of my mind. Downing and I took a ride out along the Hurley mountain to the Marble town ford and home through Hurley. We took little Jimmy along. He was very fond of little Henry Myers but does not realize his death. They are to take the little dead boy to New York by the boat tonight.
