see the anticipated Italian campaign in early
spring.  �Tommy� will hardly return before sum-
mer.     Apropos Matty asked me if I had ever
heard or told her that Tommy was of German

a letter of endorsement from him to Bigelow.   Felt
ill, all day.
  18.  Tuesday.   Chores.   Down town by 12 1/2
meeting Damoreau in Broadway, who said

dear girls present in the familiar basement, Mat
sewing, Sally at the piano, which she quitted on
my entrance, Eliza reading �Pickwick� by the fire.
