Poor creature. What a life! what a conclusion!
Her late paramour Sol Eytinge seems not much
troubled by it. He consorts with Cahill, appears
but little at table and talks of giving up his
basement quarters, but hasn�t energy enough to mention
his desire to Mrs Potter. I think I might live
two centuries in the same house with him without
any desire to renew our acquaintance.
I hear nothing from Alf Waud, in spite of
my urgent entreaty for necessary information about
my drawings. He�ll write � when he wants something
Rawson Gill has returned from Nicaragua.
Country unsettled in consequence of Walkerizations �
and his mother didn�t sent him any money. She was
�going to�, though.
Pounden is a father. Leapt out of a big Broadway
sleigh to tell me so, and dined with me subsequently.
Wrote to mine own dear Hannah on the day
and next one to that on which I got her letter.
Called on Bellew twice. Not very well
of late, and wearyish. Saw the Jewell�s this
morning, being summoned by window tapping as I
passed. Met Swinton some three days
back. He has a farm in the interior of Staten
Island now, does some wood-pecking but more
agriculturalizing. Wrote to Andrew asking
for information about cuts.
