Pic Office. Learnt that Bellew had returned to town.
Found him at Matarans, with Cahill, drinking.  There
an hour or so, Sol Eytinge coming in, then took Bellew
up town to dine with us.   Leaving him and Cahill in my
room, went down town with Haney; he over to Partons,

New York, of lorettes and actors.  He told some goodish
stories.   I suppose his life has been such that he hasn�t

  12.  Monday.  To Harpers.  Didn�t get paid, but got
another sketch accepted.   Talk of nothing but the financial
crisis.     All the Banks in New York will, this week, sus-
