	 Talk of Alf Waud and Hayes.
Will�s marriage.      Further, Alf asserts that
Will left a better business in Boston than he
will achieve here; he is popular there, �they like
his snobbishness.�     Alf is not popular, his gene-

old and haggard, that she can�t see anything
without spectacles.   Sol�s sister visited the house
during Alf�s presence.         Hayes, the engraver,
is as heretofore.         We talked acquaintances, the
rival papers, Boston, New York, things in gene-
ral, Cahill and Morris being present part of
the time.   Hayes told two good stories about
Frank Leslie, one of which I�ve heard before.

coming on to New York to get it.    Man duns
Leslie, finally on being told, at 10 A.M. that
if he�ll come at 2, F.L. will certainly be
