Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 21, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, July 21, 1882 Left camp at 4 and drove to the Falls of the Missouri where we were to meet Prof & Logan. Magnificent spring. Prof and Logan came. Did not go to the the Great Falls. Poor place to camp. Hot and difficult to get to the water. Killed a rattlesnake. Left at 1 for Kassners on Belt Creek. Coal vein here. Rained before we reached here. McCabe who drove us from Benton was in Rome when I was there in 1868 in the Papal Zouaves and was in Tivoli while we were there. Kassner a fine looking man, has a colored woman for his wife.
