Wednesday, July 15, 1885 Picked the late cherries over near my studio and on the little tree down in front of the house, after which I drove my father, Sara and Mary out for a ride, first down town where I did some errands then by the old Steep Rocks road to the Flat-bush hill and home by the Alms House to dinner. It has been a lovely still and comfortably cool day. After dinner I took Robbie Burns by appointment up to the two thirty train where I met Mr. & Mrs. Cantine who took charge of him to his new home in Saugerties. He went off in good spirits, I presume a ride on the train being a great novelty to him. There was a throng of people at the station going out to the mountains, filling five cars on the N & D road. Mary and I drove up to meet Alice who came in the 6.10 train with her two little children Bella and Gertrude to spend a month with us.
