Saturday, May 5, 1883 Had my breakfast in my room and went by 8 oclock train. It rained during the day. Took the Ulster & Delaware train at 245 and went to Phoenicia where I took the Stony Clove road to Tannersville Junction where I found Roggens team for which I had telegraphed, waiting for me. The rain had ceased. When I got to Roggens about 6.30 the Thurbers & Mrs. Wheeler had gone up to the place they proposed to buy but soon returned and we had supper together and spent the evening in the parlor together talking of their purchase which they had made about a mile north of Roggens near Parkers.
