The Jervis McEntee Diaries - September 26, 1885

Diary Entry:

Saturday, Sept 26, 1885 A letter came from Whittredge last night from N. Y. where mine had been sent to him. He is going to Pine Hill on Monday and is doubtful if he stays in the mountains more than a week. If he stays longer will remove his family to Arkville and is altogether undecided. Meanwhile I go to New York on Monday. Poor Mrs. Burns was here last night and told us Annie had got married and now she wants to get Katy back from the House of Refuge where she had her sent about a year ago. I went up to see Hussey the Recorder about it this morning and has I have another errand in town he thought it would be well for me to go and see the superintendent of the House of Refuge and see what he thinks about her coming back, so I have concluded to go Monday. Sara, my father and I drove over to Fairview to call on Capt. Anderson and Lottie. He had gone to N. Y. and all the rest had gone fishing down at the lake. We drove back by Hussey Hill and South Rondout. A hot dry South wind blew and it was not pleasant riding. Girard and his wife and Ettie Lane took tea with us and spent the evening.
