�Major Percy met Gun and Cahill together.
Cahill told Percy that he came over here on
speculation.� To the Institute fair,
to report its closing night, then to 745. The
sisters present, Matty suffering from an extreme
cold in the eyes, which had confined her to a dark
room previously � the affection either the result
of exposure on the house-top, on the night of the
procession, or on the ferry-boat yesternight,
going to Brooklyn to visit the Rees� family.
She presently retired. Talking with Eliza
(whom I brought some music for) and Sally.
Mr. Edwards, Jack, and anon Anne and
Mr. Pounds (brother to George�s wife) appeared.
Chaff at and with Anne, Sally abetting. Anne
is sharpish and shallow, inclined to play school-
mistress, but not ill-natured; Sally don�t like
her, I can see. When Pounds followed my
example in rising to go, he, in virtue, I sup-
pose, of his demi-relationship, kissed Sally
on the cheek, which Jack (who has strict no-
tions on the osculatory business in connection
with his sisters) rather demurred at, not to
say resented. Turned into Pfaff�s,
thinking I might find Shepherd. Only Mullen,
