Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday October 3, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 3, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Oct 3, 1889 Matt Daisey came early with team and good buck board rig. Anxious to get us to the camp so that he could come back that day, but we determined not to rush off in a hurry and so agreed to keep the train two days. We thought we had an appalling lot of luggage for the team and for our three boats but found we got it all on the buck board very comfortably and compactly and about 9.30 we started, Eastman and I on the buckboard and the three canoes poling some of the things up river. Cold windy morning but fine. Wind went down. Lunched at John Fowlers little schoodic. Arrived at Powers early and staid there over night and kept the team there to haul our things over the carry. Funny little Andy. An ideal Sancho Panza.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
