              29
since I parted from her, on that eventful night pre-
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
found in the Health Officers rooms.        About together
getting information, back by the last boat.  Rain storm,
thunder and lightning.     Fed at Goslings, then per
omnibus to my room by 8 1/2.      Writing out voluminous
report till 2 1/2.       Used up and ill.
  9.  Saturday.   Met Lotty as I was going down
Broadway.      To Times Office.  Saw Seymour.
Ross & Touseys where I met Frank Leslie, Strongs,
Picayune Office &c &c.    Hither and thither.  Met
Hillard.
  10.  Sunday.   Called at Franklin Street, as
requested, but Lotty was out with Alleyne.   In the
evening to the 8th avenue, some distance up town, where
I saw Lotty�s father for the first time.     A little
man, with something of his daughter in the face.
I stayed some twenty minutes, during which time he
talked.     A weakish, odd sort of man.   Didn�t re-
collect me.      Didn�t approve of his daughter being
on the stage, it wasn�t respectable.    Would have wished
her to live with him.  He was married, but there was
always a home for her.       Had made many endeavors
