Jervis McEntee Diaries
Thursday November 7, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 7, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Nov 7, 1889 I got a note from Bailey asking me to come up and spend Sunday with him. I wrote him I would do so. Today I made seven heads of cabbage into Saur Kraut, much to Katies amusement. After dinner according to agreement we walked up to the W. S. Station and took the 4.10 train for Pokeepsie to pass the night with the Wilkinsons and Mary Gifford. Mr. & Mrs Bachelder arrived just as we did and Robert came up from N. Y. so that we all dined together including Edith, who is the only one of their children home, and Mrs. Wilkinson. They have put an extension to their dining room and a very nice fire place making a most pleasant room of it. We spent a delightful evening in it before the fire. Mr Bachelder has a bad cough and he and his wife are on their way to the South for the Winter. The house is very tasteful and comfortable and the hospitality what it always was sincere and abundant. A lovely day.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
