              135.
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

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
done.
  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

Island now, does some wood-pecking but more
agriculturalizing.            Wrote to Andrew asking
for information about cuts.
