The Jervis McEntee Diaries - May 2, 1883

Diary Entry:

Wednesday, May 2, 1883 Went down town to see about a lawn roller for the cemetery and wrote to Mr. Lindsley about it. In the afternoon went up to Dobbs Ferry by the 3.30 train. Mr. Brace & Mrs. Carter were on the train. Arrived there Mr. & Mrs. Brace, Emma and I took a walk in the woods and around by Mr. Villards place. He is spending a great deal of money there but in a vulgar way it seemed to me. Took tea at Mr. Braces and spent the evening returning by the 9.39 train. Whittredge came in in the morning and he and I talked of a trip out into the Kaatskills back of the Overlook, by and bye.
