Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 23, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, Oct 23, 1887 By invitation I went down and breakfasted with Thurber and Calvert on the boat and went with them out to Thurbers place. Mr. Codwise the engineer went along. We had a special train from Phoenicia to Tannersville. It was a cold cloudy day. A carriage met us and we drove out past Star Rock where we got out and walked over the Star Rock hill and climbed Parker Mt. over rocks and logs in the steepest place. I did not think I could do it but stood it well. Then we went down and had lunch with Thurbers man where we met the carriage and drove to our train at 3 and met the regular train at Phoenicia and got home at 5. Thurber came with us and had dinner and went to N. Y. by 7.45 train.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
