              evening intended visiting Chapin�s, but rain-storm prevented, so sate in Mr
Hall�s room, in company with him, Bradley, Cross, and old gentlemanfriend of Mr H�s.
  24  Monday.  To the Office, and there drawing all day; the perspective of a 
pretty Early-English Church.  At 6, walked into Nassau Street, Colonel gone,
return through the rain.
  25. Tuesday.  Office.   On returning to Canal Street for dinner learnt that
a messenger from Spottiswoode� had called.  In the afternoon got younger Anderson
to call at Cliff street for it.      Called at Holts, saw Martin, Mr Hart &
Dillon.    In the Evening the two latter visited me, Dillon staying an hour.

  26. Wednesday.  At the Office all day.  Evening returned up
Broadway with young Pelham and Alf Waud, the latter of whom we
encountered meandering thereabouts; � the boy going with me for the loan
of books, and the purpose of meeting his brother, which he did, and de-
parted with both.  /     Original sons of an original sire are these boys.
