Jervis McEntee Diaries
Wednesday November 6, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 6, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Nov 6, 1889 I rode up to Kingston to Kenyon & Sharpes office to see if the releases had come. They had not, and I walked home. The elections yesterday were discouragingly in favor of the Democrats. In our own County the R's politicians were ahead electing Clearwater Judge and Vanderlyn Dist. Attourney. After dinner, it being a beautiful day Sara and [I] walked down to the ferry and took the 2.15 boat over the river. From there we walked down to [E?] and down to the dock hoping to get the Pokeepsie boat home but we learned one boat had been taken off and the other came too late for us so we walked back and got the 4.10 boat home.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
