Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 12, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Oct 12, 1889 Fred and I were up early and got off at 8 oclock far up river prepared to camp over night. We had five carries to pass. Ambijejis falls, Passamagammock [sic], Debsconeag, [Pockwockammos?] and Abol, the longest less than half a mile. This is where I intended to go when we came in. The river was very pretty and we had fine views of Katahdin. We reached Abol about 4 and immediately went into camp. At Pockwockammos we met a party coming down Mr. Hinckley and his wife, Dr. Simmons and a Miss Smith all of Bangor with Charlie Hale and another man and three Indians 4 canoes and a [?] with the camp & baggage. They had been about three weeks and were on their way out.
