which he led a rather drunken life, reforming a little
subsequently.    He has three or four children, now in Roches-
ter, who, Heylyn thought, had been adopted by people.   Mrs H.
said she had thought of taking one.
  28.  Tuesday.   Intended to have pursued my journey by
10 3/4 A. M. but owing to there being a quarter of an hours
difference between Rochester time � as indicated by Heylyn�s
clock and railroad-time, got left.   Out with Mrs H.  Through
the crack street to the Arcade.   Introduced to a Mr Warne, an

Cheering up Heylyn the rest of the day with considerable re-

N.Y. papers just come in.   Sat talking and smoking with
him till 11, Mrs H. keeping us company part of the time.
  29.  Wednesday.  Off after a bottle of pale ale with Warne.
Some delays on the train.    Across the Suspension Bridge
at Niagara, with a distant view of the falls.   Dep�t on the other
side.   Nearly three hours delay before I could go on to Hamilton
and so to Paris.   Left baggage and took a tramp along the
road till in sight of the cataracts, there ate my bread and
cheese and drank a bottle of Scotch ale.   Back to dep�t. More
delay � the train behind time, in consequence of a fair at Toron-

by 9 P. M. seeing nothing but a station and the black night.
Into omnibus and a mile�s ride to town.   To bed at the little
hotel where the vehicle stopped at.
30.	Thursday.   Inquired my way and set off, leaving
