Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 6, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Sept 6, 1890 A heavy fog in the morning and a grey, damp day with a heavy shower in the afternoon. I went down town as usual and got some things for Sara's ladies lunch and a letter from Bowyer telling me he could only get one of the camp beds done. The tent came this afternoon also the rubber coats. I wrote to Church that if Lewis wanted to go to the Maine Woods with us we would be glad to have him, telling him what he would need etc. and to let me know at once so that I can engage another guide. All the ladies came promptly except Mrs. Hess who sent her regrets yesterday. There were Miss Sheffield, Mrs. Clarke and Mr. Clarkes sister Mrs. Whiting, Mary Vaux, Sara, Mrs. Searing, Julia Dillon, Girards wife, Mrs. Clearwater & Mrs. John Forsyth and myself. It was given for Miss Sheffield who is going away soon from Cantines. It was a very successful and pleasant occasion and all seemed to enjoy it.
