Stephens.                Jack Arnold visited
Bob Gun to-night.    Morris and Cahill in
my room, from which the former has just reti-
red, and where the latter is sleeping in a chair,
on the other side of the table at which I write
this.
  4.  Thursday.  In doors, drawing &c all
the wet, close, miserable day.
  5.  Friday.  Continuation of yesterday until
4 P. M. when becoming so feverish and nervous with
over-long imprisonment in doors, and the weather
promising to clear up went down town.
  6.  Saturday.  Down town, day a lovely one.
To Century, Pic, & other offices.   Drawing till
late at night.             This night I occupy an
unshared room, the which I�m not sorry for,
Cahill returning to his Amity Place boarding-
house.   Yesterday his landlady visited me, wish-

he did, presently returning in high glee and
clean linen.    The woman was also his laundress
and had, he says, detained his clothes for security
of the owing $2, refusing to give them up on his
application.     I had a mind to speak to the woman
when she came to me, about the inhumanity of
the proceedings but as the event proved it was well
I refrained.     Cahill acknowledges he lied to me
