Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 1, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, July 1, 1886 Sara and I each received letters from Lucy from Fort Gaston dated June 20th in which she says that only two Sundays more will pass before they will be here, and that they will telegraph from Eureka when they reach there. She gave an interesting account of going down the Trinity river some distance in a canoe with two Indians and of Jamies hunting expedition with an Indian in which they got seven deer and a large black bear. The lovely weather continues although it has been warmer this afternoon. We went for a ride after dinner, my father, Mary, Sara and I by the Roatina, the river road and the Strand where we did some errands. Mrs. Cantine told Sara confidentially of the growing hostility between Major Cornell and Sam Coykendall which culminated lately in a fierce war of words between them. I wrote to Wilmurt and to Kurtz in answer to notes from each of them about my pictures.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
