Strongs�s &c. Sold drawings on wood to the latter.
Return and in-doors for the rest of the day.
25. Tuesday. Indoors, drawing till the af-
ternoon. Getting queer and nervous to a painful degree,
reminding me of past experience. Rushed out after
dinner to 27th Street, there to call at Bellew�s, but
mistaking the house came back more nervous than
before. Drawing, with pain, at night.
26. Wednesday. Down town &c. Illness con-
tinued. Unable to do anything well.
I have letters from Dillon Mapother, and from
my brother Sam. Dillon tells that Yatman went
back to England in September last, previously in
forming him that his (Yatman�s) �engagement�
with Miss McMullen had been broken off. (He
wrote �in a very Toots like manner.� Sam
writes a long, kindly young letter. He and Min-
nie are as when I left only more so. He talks
of �being able to keep himself and wife without any
aid from his father &c &c�; complains he can�t
save a halfpenny; mentions that he has had an
assistant, and was therefore enabled �to take
it easier� in company with Minnie, � three weeks
at Swinford and three at Ramsgate
&c : tells of Joe Stokes going to Australia, pro-
fesses indefinite intentions of change of residence,
willingness to emigrate, and much more. Mrs
Heath has another child; Tilly is staying with her
