Street, at sunset, through muddy, sloppy, dank London atmosphere.
  6. Thursday.  In-doors all day, drawing some little, reading more, thinking
melancholic and matagrabolized.
  7. Friday. Down town during the morning, called at Park Place, at Genin�s,
at Holden�s Magazine Office, where I had a chat with Fowler, to the Era Office.
Then to Putnam�s, to purchase certain numbers of Leigh Hunts journal. [word crossed

  8. Saturday.  In doors, drawing all day, till evening, when leaving Charley,
his friend Fogg and Waud, ran down town, and through the intensely cold night

harmony and bibition till about 12, when Charley and friend Fogg turn in &
I do the same.

the morning.  Afternoon in-doors, save, at sunset a brief Broadway stroll with
Mr Cross.  Smoke issuing from the rear of Stewards palace-store a huge posse

elder and Alf Waud. Ale and talk.
