              Fulton, to Butlers.  He has cut the �Porcupine� title beastly.   A sketch
to make, for painting to be placed over the store of Dyspepsia-butters quack vendor.
Drawing during the afternoon. Evening to Duane Street.  Out with Mr Hart &
Dillon, to the Tavern whereat Mr Royal some-time-past accompanied me.  Edwards,
formerly fiddle-string maker now barman there.  To the �Grapes� in Chamber
Street subsequently, and a read at the English papers.
  9. Friday.  To Roberts for block, thence to Butlers, and with him
and the drawing to Hutchings and Woodward �Picayune�-proprieters and mede-
cine vendors. There awhile, then to Post Office; met Andrews; then
to the Era Office. �Tom Frank� there with first number of New York �Reveille.�
Picton came, out with him, parted; I called at Genins about ticket to
Jenny Lind�s concert � then to dinner.   Afternoon called again as appointed at
Genins and Hutchings, then back, drawing, on the Roberts and Rogerian
subject.   Evening went, boy Vanderhoff accompanying me part of the way, to Canal
Street, where I found that Mr Hall and Homer Hall had left for Genessee to return
the next week.  Next to Franklin Street, saw Lotty�s little brother, left and to
Butler home in Walker Street.  Then sate conversing with him and his wife and
a certain girl there till 11, pleasantly enough, sitting there laughing and the like,
till on departing Butler declared he �wished that I�d come every evening.�

expected to get paid, that was not the way to induce it� and the like.   Very
irate was she. [words crossed out] She wasn�t over wise in writing the letter.

Street during the morning.   Mr Hart and Dillon dining here, after we cross
