hearty, and sailorish.            Back to room and
writing.     Bellew looked into the basement in the
evening, as did Wurzbach, who subsequently came up
into my room.          Wrote a letter to Dillon.
  {From the 12th Wednesday to       Writing, though
  the 16th Saturday, inclusive.}       not as readily or as

afternoon, and half a nuisance, as usual.        To the

irritable, unable to master it.
  19.  Tuesday.  Up the fifth Avenue, down to the
Tribune Office, then to drawing.  I�m wretched spirits
