ler and Briggs and with reason.
30. Monday. Principally scribbling up the
last twenty pages. Out for a walk as far
as Chamber St. at sunset. Returning, in
Bleecker Street, met Lotty and Miss Martin.
She was going into a house in Leroy Place, one
to which her Houston St. boarding-house friends
have just moved to. She intended to sleep at
the Smithsonian, wanted me to call on her, du-
ring the evening. I saw her, not at the hotel
mentioned, but at the Leroy-place house, for
twenty minutes or so, when her uncle arrived
and called her away. Didn�t see said uncle,
but she came to New York for that purpose,
so she said. Haney at supper with us.
Mrs. Potter moves to-day, to another house in
the same street. Mrs. Griffin ex-Gouverneur
goes security for the rent, in her last-written
name � an illegal transaction, such a one
as women like her and Mrs Potter never
demur at. Mrs G. will, likely enough, re-
turn to live with Mrs. P. In which case,
Leslie�s wife objects to boarding there. Morris
went off with Haney to help him carry things,
subsequently together to Bellew�s. Boweryem
and anon Morris in my room. Did not
get to bed till 1, scribbling and talking.
