Wednesday, July 30, 1873- General Grant has had a fine day at the Overlook. It cleared this morning, with fine masses of clouds and a soft, beautiful atmosphere, just the day for the mountain tops. He returned to Kingston this evening where he has a reception at Genl. Sharpes. The two Misses Forsyth, Miss Shufeldt, Mrs. Adams, Miss Young and Miss Hasard from Newport with Julia and Nannie were at tea and spent the evening.
