                     Lizzie Woodward.
zie Woodward, who appeared in the boarding-
house parlor very brightly dressed and plump-
looking.  By this time Lizzie was understood
to be  engaged  to Fite, but she didn t object
to a little extraneous kissing and would, I am
sure, have thrown the little toy-shop clerk over, if
a more eligible suitor had presented himself.
She hinted as much.  It seems to be all over
between her sister and and George Richardson, who,
says Lizzie,  behaved shamefully.   I think
Sophy really liked him very much, and what
is more, was constant to him in his absence.
  I had a letter from Rice at Louisville to-
day.
   30.  Tuesday.  In-doors all day, writing
article for the  Continental Mag. , as requested
by its proprietor, whom I met at the  Tribune 
office and was introduced to by Gay.  Bird-
sall called at 6 and told me that Thomp-
son and Hay were on their way hither
from South Carolina.
