The Jervis McEntee Diaries - July 21, 1883

Diary Entry:

Saturday, July 21, 1883 Mr. Sawyer, my father and I started to go to the place where the water works company take the water from the Sawkill but we only got as far as Sawkill bridge. We found it was four or five miles from there over a very rough road and so we returned. It has been a pleasant day, a little warmer than yesterday as the wind was south, but still a charming day. After dinner Mr. Sawyer, Downing and I walked up to the Union Depot to see the train for the mountains come in. There were 8 cars. Two trains went up the N & D road with ten cars. The scene at the station was very animated with the arrival of all these trains and the transfer from one to the other. I saw Theodore Cole who had come to Kingston on business.
