The Jervis McEntee Diaries - July 20, 1883

Diary Entry:

Friday, July 20, 1883 The same delightful temperature as yesterday. I went over to the cemetery directly after breakfast and trained the morning glory vines on poor Maurices grave over some long flexible twigs I took with me and with which I made a sort of wicker frame. Annie Norton came up and she and Mary and I went over to my studio and walked about my place which Henry keeps very neatly. At 6.30 Mary and I went to the Union Station to meet Mr & Mrs Sawyer. I had had a postal card from Knight which left their route in doubt. They did not come. Mrs. Wheeler and Frank Thurber got off the train on their way to the mountains. Meanwhile Downing had gone to the down train on the Hudson River road but they did not arrive by that. After tea he drove down to a later train but they arrived meanwhile by the 7.40 W. S. road their baggage having been detained at Fishkill.
