going to Harpers, as I was.     Bonner out. Dr Palmer
there and one Nordhammer.  Return up town with Cahill and
Haney.  The former has been working on a story for the last week
or so, with intention to take it to Harper�s.      /     Mrs Pounden the
elder, and her husband � both from Canada � are here, boarding.
  12.  Thursday.  Round to Bellew�s, where I found him and
Cahill, who is again in his employ.   Return and drawing.
  13.  Friday.  In-doors employments.      O�Brien up in the
evening awhile.   His �Man About Town� won�t appear in Harper�s

�is a bad lot� generally.  Charley gets �150 salary, annually, lent
some of his sowings �foolishly�� he says � �to a friend in trouble,�
and offers to lend me some if I want it.          God bless the fellow!   I
don�t.     My mother felt Greatbatch�s death � as did Mrs Bolton � that�s
all.     The boy Edwin Bolton wants to asinify himself by marrying a mil-
