I am paid by the �Post.�
me a kiss as she drew near my chair in the
dance. Party broke up at 11, as usual.
20. Wednesday. Found Bigelow at the
office. He, after some discussion, re-
membered a remark of my recalling which
convinced him as to the justice of my claims,
and accompanying me down-stairs, told Hen-
derson as much. I had another fight about
the payment for yesterday�s letter which Hender-
son wanted to include in my Charleston salary;
finally I carried it and got paid $103.60,
in all representing my last eight weeks labor.
Up-town. F. Wood called, to invite me to meet
Colt at his house. Shepherd called. Evening
at 16th street, with Haney in the Hayes� room.
There till midnight.
21. Thursday. Got a note from Babbage
and from W. Waud, the latter dated Montgomery
Alabama, at which he arrived on the 12th,
quitting Augusta at 2 P.M. on the preceding
day. Augusta is �a very pretty city � streets
immensely wide, planted with trees, ^|�| on one side
of it several cloth and grist-mills, foundries
&c, with canals and railway to match �
so that it partly combines Columbia and Savan-
nah with a bit of Lowell, Mass., thrown in.
