The Jervis McEntee Diaries - June 28, 1883

Diary Entry:

Thursday, June 28, 1883 Reached Newport about 8. Breakfasted at the Aquidneck where Booth got a carriage and we drove down to his place about 5 miles I should say where we staid until 3 oclock inspecting his house which Calvert has completed and which Booth has never before seen. It is a very inviting place and I think will entirely suit him. Came back to town, dined and took a ride around the Ocean drive where all the fashionable seats are. Much wealth and extravagance to all of which I felt myself a complete alien. Took the boat at 9 after a beautiful breezy and most entertaining day.
