Left almost immediately.   Up sunny and
cool Broadway, met the Edwards� girls, Sally
dressed smartly walking with Monroe, the Califor-
nian, Matty and Eliza behind.          Matty gave me
a greeting smilingly.      I passed the two last again,
Eliza in company with a girl friend, Matty some

I learnt that Arnold is in town, having come up

talking to Gun & Cahill.   Left, to Century Office,
Carrington�s (leaving M. S. at both,) to Post Office,
(where I again met Dixon) then to Sunday Courier
Office.      Haney there and Smith.   I to do a column
or less a week for $5.      Found Gun, Cahill and
