our ladies.        There seems to prevail, at
this over the way establishment great indefiniteness
as to the husband of Mrs Rosenberg.   He is spoken
of dubiously as in Europe.         I see him down
town occasionally.  He made one of a party to
Jones Wood to ther day, or rather he has some
official position there, in the ticket collecting
way   and Bellew, Cahill, Thad Glover and
Duff, the aforesaid party, found him there.
Rosenberg hospitably entertained them.   Cahill
don t like him, says he has heard him tell
stories of having infected his wife with Syphilis.
  Cahill went home with Glover, got him talking
about Allie and Josey, the first of whom Glover
pronounced  a noble woman!   a good wife for
any man!   the second he declared he had
seduced, doing nauseous sentimental remorse about
it.    A lewder or foolisher mortal is hardly
to be discovered in this literary cess-pool of
New York.   He, Glover is  down on  Haney;
claims to have  introduced  him to journalism,
as I know, a lie.        Glover, like Dick Hutchings,
does I think little else but swell about for tainted
female flesh, yet the man is married and
they say to a pleasant and decent woman.
