	           Banks  Bellew s boy. 
  19.  Tuesday.   To Harpers.   Left story for Bon-
ner and met Damoreau, who talked of Haney
being at the Crocketts  on Sunday, of Madame and
the like.    He had a visit from his crony, Fogg,
a day back; which Fogg, as I know, returned
from ^|the| Minnesota experiment some time ago, discon-
tented with it.               To F. Leslie s.  With W. Waud,
and White to Crook and Duff s, there drinking
with them and talking, Banks joined us.  (He talk-
ed of having business with Bellew, as if it involved
heavy commercial relations.     He is as Cahill calls
it,  Bellew s boy  at $5 a week.)        Meantime Waud
was talking with Nast who had come in with
Eytinge.   As drinks had just been ordered I invi-
ted Tommy to join us; he declined civilly, on the plea 
that he had to go to work.        Alf, Will said, with
some envy, was having a very great time in Wash-
ington, invited to suppers with officers, getting special
information of movements, &c.    To F. Leslie s again,
anon to Haney s, where Banks came in, eulogizing
a specially cheap pair of boots he wore, purchased
at Fulton market.         To Leslie s again, saw him,
Powell and Bellew   Newman, previously.   Got
block, returned up town by 3.       Drawing during
the evening.   Haney up and Boweryem.   Reading
 Philip  and talking.      Haney stayed till about 2,
Cahill replacing Boweryem for the latter two hours.
