Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 4, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, June 4, 1882 Some men who had killed an Antelope sent us a steak for breakfast. Left for Little Missouri 12.30. At Dickinson talked with an old buffalo hunter. He said to me in answer to some inquiries about them "Now the Buffalo is an animal that dont wish to be annoyed by citizens." A man in a party of engineers was drowned here today but it seems to excite little comment. Three young Antelopes in boxes, one only a few days old. Arrived at Little Missouri in the night, where our car was left.
