Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 15, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, May 15, 1886 Met Weir and Johnson at the 23rd St ferry where Pinchot had provided return tickets for us to Port Jervis. We took the 8.45 train. It was a misty morning but the ride through the fresh, spring landscape was very charming. Pinchot and his little son met us with a carriage at Port Jervis and we drove down to Milford where we had a capital lunch at Foucheres hotel. Afterwards we drove up to his new house and went through it. It is in a charming situation and is very large and built after the French Chateaus with pointed towers. The interior is very generous and pleasant. We went and looked at the Falls and came back to the village and drove down the valley a few miles and came back to the hotel. Had a splendid French dinner which our elaborate lunch had spoiled, but we sat and talked until near midnight.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
