not worth much generally, doing little but
two sketches. Gun sick, too, and Maurice,
latter keeping his bed. Bellew came at 6. Get-
ting better in the evening stayed down-stairs, talking
to little Miss Maguire. She was born in Ireland.
10. Wednesday. Chores &c. Finished letter
to Alf Waud and wrote one to George Bolton, then
down town. To �Century� Office. Saw F. Wood at
Crook and Duff�s and J. Wood entered with Sol Ey-
tinge. Bellew, Cahill and Shepherd � �Daisy� Shep-
herd � as the fellows call him (he whom I first en-
countered at the Catskills, six or seven years ago)
up, the two latter together both a little drunk. All
in Bob Gun�s room, Morris there also. It appeared
that Shepherd, calling on Cahill, had taken him out
to a supper and spree, in the course of which Cahill
had climbed up some railings at the house of Dr Mott,
in this street, and stolen a pie placed near an open
window, some half dozen lookers-on being watching him.
The pie, in its tin, was hot and burnt his fingers.
After carrying it for a block he as hastily ran back,
climbed up the railings again and returned the comes-
tible with �Here�s your Pie! � �Thank you Sir! obli-
ged to you! � responded the surprised women recipients.
He and Shepherd had been elsewhere � to no good place
� and were refused admission. Stories told. Of
Arnold and Shepherd drunk at Crook and Duff�s
affecting to quarrel and going to Times and Herald
