Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 20, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Oct 20, 1889 Awake and up at daylight. Thick misty weather and S wind. Hurried our packing, breakfasted and got off at 8. West Branch pretty high. Walked down to head of Quakish. At the carry learned that the team had gone to Medway and no telling when it would be back. A young man and his guide from Moosehead had been here since yesterday noon. They finally lugged across as did the Hatheway party. Learned it was Mr. Hubbard the author of the map of this region. We made preparations to go into camp comfortably and had our supper and got well established by dark.
