up Broadway to Union Square, after dinner,
in the course of which perambulation I passed
Jim and Old Party, who noticed me, though Jim
didn�t. The lines parenthesizing her mouth have
deepened considerably of late, she looks old and
vicious. To Century, Pic Offices &c &c, return-
ing uptown by 6. Met Mrs Patten, too, before
the other encounter. She had seen an announcement
of Mrs Levison�s return from Europe in the papers.
[Phonography] in the evening, which I have been obliged to drop
for a week or so.
23. Thursday. Did four Pic. Drawings on
wood. Cahill up, this time to borrow 50 cents to get
his dinner. Down town after nine, to Century
and Pic Offices. Returned with Morris (�K.N. Pap-
er) looking in at Williams & Stevens� to see
Church�s and Gignoux� Niagaras. [Phonography] in the evening.
Turned out at 10 � for beer, called unsuccessfully
for Cahill, found Gun and Mc Pyke�s. He wants
me to edit as well as illustrate the Pic, including both
for $15, which puts the former task at $5 weekly �
too little, by half.
24. Friday. By Pic block and dull day in-
doors till evening. Cahill came, with him to 16th St,
where he left, saying, metaphorically, �there was a wo-
man who kept a big dog on the street which he was
afraid of. �Found little Nast with Haney. The
Edwards� in half an hour. Ed. Wells, Knudsen
