Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday August 3, 1887
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 3, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Aug 3, 1887 Weir & his wife came by City of Kingston. Mrs. French, Lily, Mrs. Weir & Edith went to Prattsville and I brought Mr & Mrs Weir up on the hill where they breakfasted with us and we took them to the 10.30 ferry boat to go to Hudson to join Mary Gifford. They are going together to Lake Minnewaska in a few days. Tom finished the hay yesterday. It has been very tedious getting it in. I saw by the Tribune today Oscar is to be buried at Mt. Auburn and the funeral is probably taking place today. I feel very sad for his people whenever I think of them. I think from what Mr. Sawyer said in his letter yesterday he has not expected Oscar to live long. I think he understood his irregular life, but I doubt if Mrs. Sawyer did. Marion came from Lake Mohonk today. The weather is more agreeable with the wind from the N. but very hot in the sunshine.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
