Grace �don�t want to go.�    �She sat and
read one of Cobb�s stories as they journeyed through
some of the most beautiful scenery, last year � made
Jim so mad!� says Mrs Edwards. ��
  12.  Friday.   Drawing.  Down town after
dinner to Century and Pic Offices, returning Bowery
way.      Cahill in Gun�s room at night.  He is
filling Haney�s place on the Courier during the former�s
absence and don�t seem to love a hard days work.
  Wrote letter to Hannah.
  13.  Saturday.  Drawing and writing: out to
Spring St Post Office.   To Century Office after
dinner, to P.O. returned per omnibus.   To draw-
ing again till 8.     Shepherd up in Gun�s room.
  14.  Sunday.  Drawing, reading &c; Cahill up,
principally in Gun�s room.   Out with him after din-
ner, with intent to go to the Central Park but the
cars looked so crowded that we abandoned the idea
for a loafing along the riverside wharfs, where we
saw policemen taking away the clothes of boys who were
bathing.       Return.        With Morris to Palace Garden
in the evening, met Perkins, a nephew of Everett�s, and
another.      Gun and Cahill drinking in the former�s
room, which they kept up till 4 A. M. I leaving
them at midnight, � considerably drunk then.     There�s
no hope whatever of reforming Cahill, relieved from
temporary necessity he is as rudderless as ever.
15.	Monday.   Chores &c.   Down town to Century
