Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 15, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Oct 15, 1889 The most beautiful morning since we have been in the woods. We suddenly made up our minds about 10 o'clock to leave for the Joe Merry [sic] Lakes and immediately set about packing up. We got away at 10.20 and passed down the lake which was perfectly calm until after we passed the Ambijejis House when the wind began to blow gently and by the time we reached [P?] Island it has passed into a gale and Pemadumcook was lashed into white caps. We staid on the Island for a couple of hours and then returned to the mainland not far from the Ambijejis House where we made camp on the site of a much frequented camp with its accompaniments of old [?], shuts, boots, bones and general nastiness where we dined and retired early.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
