our left. And I have a particular admiration for
the explosive patriotism of Young and Hobly-de-hoysih
America, which always commences a full month before the
4th of July. There�s an ass in this vicinity who has fired
of a pistol at least ten times every evening, not to mention
his day performances too, for the last fortnight. And I
never hated street organs before.
11 & 12. Friday & Saturday. Getting better.
13. Sunday. Down stairs. In the afternoon took
a walk to Broome St, calling on the Jewell�s. Found them
supping in the basement. A pretty spacious, emptyish house
in a questionable neighborhood. Plenty of latticed doors
in the vicinity and, on hot summer evenings, bare-armed
promenade along the sidewalks. To Chapin�s, and
subsequently to the Edwards�. Haney there.
14. Monday. Out, to get physic only. Working, wearily
15. Tuesday. Having got a drawing on wood of Alf
Waud�s from Cahill which arrived last Thursday or
Friday, and was confided to him by Haney that it
might reach me an hour sooner � and which he, being
probably on a drunken spree with my asinine namesake,
left somewhere in Broadway, only appearing with it
this morning � I took it to Bonner. About all the
morning, and quite tired out. To the doctors and
Arnold�s at night. Neither Cahill nor Gun appear
at table at all now. The farmer is doing nothing an
paying Mrs P. nothing. You hear of both of them as entring
taverns in a strobe of idotic drunkenness.
