Jervis McEntee Diaries
Sunday May 25, 1890
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 25, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, May 25, 1890 Chilly again today. The Van Dusens arrived from California last night and James came to see us this morning looking remarkably well. I went down this morning and invited John and Julia to dine with us at 2 oclock which they did. After dinner John and I went out to look at the carriage house which I have been trying to sell and I finally sold it to him for $75. He proposes to take it down and put it on the lower end of his lot here on the hill to store some of his old patterns in. We met Schultz and Cantine coming up to look about the place, as John and I were going down to get his horses for a drive. We went out on the Saugerties road which was very dusty and turned in at Saunders old place and drove clear in to the Burhams place, then to Leggs Mills and over to the Flat-bush road home. I wrote to Alice today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
