         My Story reprinted in  the Times. 
just published number, wanting copy and
requesting me not to confine myself to my stipu-
lated $9 worth.           To Crook and Duffs.   Met
George Arnold there, as yesterday, when I found
him in company with long Frank Wood, who
has coarsened considerably in exterior as morally,
and William Winter, poetaster to the  Satur-
day Press,  to whom I was introduced, and
who seemed to know me.    Arnold spake of
 the Phalanx  and of the recent death of Warren s
wife, in or after child-birth.           Banks was ad-
jacent, talking to Gayler the redfaced.         This
yesterday.      Today O Brien was with Arnold;
and, within the restaurant, Cahill addressed
me, presently sitting down to sherry-cobblers
I got beside Wood who seemed shy and sulky,
probably at the contrast presented by  Vanity
Fair  with  Momus,  for both publications were
there.         O Brien loitered in again, but as usual
we cut one another mutually.         Welden came,
addressed me and Cahill, and I went off
with him to Lovejoy s, where he had an appoint-
ment with a  Times  man, who told me my
 All the Year Round  Story had been reprinted
in the weekly edition of that paper.        Seymour
is in Europe   Germany.           Up town in sunny
Broadway, passed pretty Matty and her father.
