Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 4, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Sept 4, 1884 Busy about various things all forenoon. The day has been very hot. I was writing a letter to Mr. Bachelder when Julia Wilkinson and Gifford were announced. They were on their way to the mountains and having some time on their hands came up here. I drove them up to the station and barely had time to get them there as we supposed but the train was delayed a little by the West Shore train and we had ample time. She is going up to take possession of Mrs. Wheelers house for September. John, Girard and I went fishing at Leggs Mills. We did not get there until 4 oclock by reason of having to wait for bait in Kingston. We fished above the falls and caught a nice lot. I got one weighing two pounds. The moon is at its full now and the nights are charming. We did not get home until 8 oclock. It has been one of our hottest days. I had a letter from Miss Nesmith.
