  15. Sunday.  Joe cometh early, as appointed, and we sally
out in the fresh bright morning.     Crossed to Jersey City (,talking
with a man from Indiana, by the way.)   A glimpse at the �Asia� through
the railings, then called at York Street.    Saw Mrs Haun, and

the �G�hals of New York� with Orr.     Called in at Butler�s �
