	      An amiable Conspiracy.
Ledger by 1.   To �Tribune� Office and after ^|half| an
hour�s waiting, saw Dana, who told me article
would go in.     Horace Greeley and Solon Robinson
conversing.      To �Courier� Office, saw Briggs.
Return up-town in the rain with Ledger.       Drawing
on wood in the evening till 12.   In Ledger�s room
for an hour subsequent.        Little Boweryem in mine,

in the 2nd Avenue, works at Frank Leslie�s, in
his artist�s room there, with Wallin, Stephens, Berg-

Tracy, Billington, Shepherd, Cahill, Bob Gun,
Damoreau and Ledger himself, presently
