Bellew up in Gun�s room in the evening, with
Cahill, who is almost always there nocturnally

25 cents per night; one night (Tuesday) sharing
Bob Gun�s bed, another occupying the editorial
chair in the Pic Office.                     The Hillards up
to see me, this evening, bringing an acquaintance,

with Morris and Billington.       Latter is a young
man who has done some exceedingly weak piddlings
