           O�Brien roasting with Shepherd
slow � paterfamilias, Mrs E., a man I have
seen before there, conversing together, mostly about
the �Great Eastern.�      Paterfamilias made jocular
allusion to Eliza�s Wednesday rudeness, I was
invited to join them on the Fourth and that�s about
all that occurred.                            O�Brien showed

into Shepherd�s room to get something, on rising,
he found O�Brien on the sofa and being extremely
