Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday May 30, 1879
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, May 30, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
I had my hotel full last night. The children, Jamie and Sedgewick came over and slept here in addition to John and Lucy. We all breakfasted here this morning and at ten I went with Whittredge up to the Harlem Depot to take the train for Butlers where the G. B. Club was invited to lunch today. There we met Dr Willard Parker, Judge Spier, McDonough, Collins, Gordon, Gifford, Eastman Johnson, Dr. Otis, Dr. Draper and Mr. Nash. Took the train and got off at Hartsdale where Butler met us with carriages but most of us preferred to walk to the home. It proved a charming breezy day. We had a ride, then our nice lunch, a chat afterwards and returned with the 4.10 train, having had a most pleasant experience. This was "Declaration Day" and it has been very generally observed. I did not see the procession but I hear it was very fine. A letter from Lily French before I left.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
