Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 6, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Oct 6, 1889 Settled the camp and arranged everything in order. Fred went back to the carry yesterday for his dog to hunt deer which I discovered after he left is contrary to game laws here or would have objected. Did not return until today. Visit from Powers and Dr [blank] from Boston who are in camp West of here on an island. They all went out for a deer taking Fred and his dog. Plenty of yelping and banging and towards evening they returned with a deer. Nice boiled partridges for dinner. Began to rain in the evening and rained all night.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
