Panic.� Will �is, as usual, lazy.�       O�Brien came in
the evening.    He, Haney and Cahill in my room.   Toddy,
smoke, talk, and, presently, songs.  Broke up at 11, when
I went to bed and they to boxing, in Haney�s room.
  1.  Sunday.  A rush to Hoboken trees and rocks with Haney
and Cahill, returning to dinner.    In doors, for my part, during
the rest of the day.  Reading and writing �(the last 3 1/2 pages, &c.)

about the ferry-house, his breath stinking horribly.      After waiting
the arrival of several boats and dispatching a messenger to Bellews
with a note, we left Cahill behind to wait still longer and set
off.     Into a carriage all of us, and with baskets &c it proved a
very tight fit, Doesticks on the seat beside the driver, from which he
got off twice or thrice to purchase now a sauce-pan (to boil supposti-
