Strongs�s &c.      Sold drawings on wood to the latter.

  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

at Swinford and three at Ramsgate

willingness to emigrate, and much more.     Mrs
Heath has another child;    Tilly is staying with her
