ceding my journey to the North & South.
  8.    Friday.  Down town.   Commissioned by
Armstrong of the �Times�, who assumes Tuthill�s
place during his holiday, to go to Staten Island
there to inquire about Yellow fever at Quarantine
&c.      Followed in the wake of little Edge, whom I

Ross & Touseys where I met Frank Leslie, Strongs,
