Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, October 13, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thurs. Oct. 13- Passed a comfortable night in our tent, which is an excellent one. Left for Millinoket at 10. Cloudy but not cold. Fired at a poor wounded duck on the lake until we were ashamed and left it. At Churchs camp found everything dirty and dilapidated with a stone fire place built close up to the house. Went to work and cleaned up and soon made ourselves comfortable. Left a part of our load at the carry.
