and drizzle, feeling ��� oh!     Got hair cut.  A
letter from Dillon Mapother this morning.  Oh me! the
contrast!   Newly married � happy � prosperous � weekly
expenses of the firm, for wages $200 � got a contract for
a $6000 map of Louisville � talks of buying a house
and lot in Spring!    Well, God bless the fellow!  Eheu!
  Saw White the Irishman, ex-treasurer (!) to F. Leslie.
Graham�s mag to be removed to New York, he publisher.
Spoke to him about work.    How I had tried this week �
how I must keep on trying!
  5.  Sunday.  Writing, in doors, all the dull, dark, dreary

writing, down town by noon.  Left stories at �Great Republic�

did I expect to get for it?  Told him $20.� Better let me
have it for Scalpel,� said he.  Which I agreed to, wish-
ing to submit article for approbation before acceptance.  That
he wouldn�t hear of, and paid $5 as earnest.  Talk of
other subject for me to do or Scalpel, regularly.  Hur-
rah! � sky clearing a bit!   Called on the Jewell�s for an hour
or so.
