Saturday, May 29, 1886 Breakfasted with Calvert and Bowyer and afterwards went up town to get some articles and to call on Dr. Hunt about my eye. Then to Calverts office to see the plans of Griffiths house, some changes he has made in the Grant monument and to have some talk about the Magaia[?] Park as a designer for it is to be chosen on June 9th. Came home by City of Kingston leaving at 1. Sam Coykendall was on board but I did not know it until we were half way home. When we reached Pokeepsie or shortly after he joined me and we had a social chat. It seemed to me he talked somewhat with reference to the matter of the purchase of our place but made no direct allusion to it nor did I, as I saw no use in doing it. Annie Norton and Aunt Christina were on board but as they were in a state room I did not see them until we were near home. I rode up on the hill in the carriage with them. Aunt Christina seems pretty feeble but she has seemed so for many years.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
