              Back to the �National� & farewell to Campeau.   All the evening either
& the Tribune Office or Hotel.      Got my baggage from the Waver-
ly & put up at the National.         Introduced to many persons, &
had quite a circle of pleasant Michigan folk made known to me.
  21.  Wednesday.  After breakfast (in the usual royal style,) met
Wall, and to his residence, where he gave me specimens of copper &c.
Parting went to Tribune Office, and read the New York Papers of Mon-
day.   More introductions, ad libitum.       A walk to the Pacific,
and Ward�s Office, no one I knew there.   To Newberry�s, & then
to dinner.        Most of the afternoon at the Tribune Office, after
partaking of a bottle of champagne with Pomeroy & Barns, in the 
room of the latter, (opposite to mine, & by the bye, the same one
where Swan invited me to brandy & water in.)    Sent guitar strings
& letter to Barth.    Evening talking with Frisell &c and at length
the omnibus is at the door for the Cleveland boat.       In reply to
my inquiry for bill I got a polite bow & a shake of-the hand from the
proprietor, Benjamin.  �Good byes�, and �Farewell to you all gentle-
men,� and I am jolted of, and fifteen minutes brings me to the
Cleveland.      A very handsome boat.   One of Ward�s line.   Here I
find Brown the Pacific steward, got introduced, present a letter from
Pomeroy, and am shewn into a handsome state room.   A long talk
with a projective Down easter, here convassing for book selling, who
after endeavouring to get one as an agent, on hearing of my Lake
Superior trip, immediately proposes a gigantic panorama, I to lec-
ture to it.        I shew him stones & specimens, & have quite a
little crowd of lookers on, in the luxurious lady�s Saloon.    Finally
all quit, I wrote the last three pages, and now, to bed.
