I Take Passage for Charleston.
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
Jewish origin? the thing was new to me, but his
features do not contradict
it. All at hickory-nuts & talk.
Tousey left quite early, Haney & I at 11 �. Pre-
viously to calling I had gone to Dixon�s getting
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
his wife was house-hunting in Brooklyn. We
ha a glass of ale together and parted at the
�Post� office. Bigelow hadn�t come down, so after
waiting awhile outside in the cool sunny street,
I went to Haney�s office returning in half an hour
to find my man. Talk final and interruptive.
Thrice to bank, at last got $100 and took pas-
sage for Charleston; thence to Haney�s again,
anon a lunch (at 4) at Crook and Duff�s &
then to Leslie�s. Thence up-town. Evening
to 745. The actors all at Haney�s, only the
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.
