              Bulwer�s Caxton�s.  One thing it shall teach me.  No more unmanly
regrets [word crossed out] � that passion has occupied too much of my life, and has
rendered my mind morbid.     Out with�t � and be weary of again befooling thyself
with another.
  30.  Wednesday.  At Holmes morning and afternoon.   Called at Andersons. Evening
told Mrs Spatterson of my approaching Exodus, whereat she said � Very well!�  To the 
lantic Street Dock where I got a note from Bharf, in reply to one I transmitted with
fowl shyrtes in the morn.   Met Macnamara, and talk of Anderson, (of his debts &
doings.    Met Dunsiere & Fagan, the latter of whom left yesterday & now abideth with 
Dunsiere�s.   Talk awhile of an embryo sell for Keating, then parted.
  31. Thursday. Stuffing carpet bag & loading myself, then a weary walk to New
York Leonard Street, the traps being fearfully heavy.   Stowed them away in temporary
room nigh to the aether, then to Wall Street.     Back for dinner, � a cheering con-
trast to the last weeks dinners. Large, long, high room, some fifteen boarders. 
again, finished big landscape, another to do on the morrow.     Evening after supper,
(good again,) to Canal Street for things.  Some time there; back, putting things in
order &c, and now here sit I, again on the Island of Manna-hatta, and tol-
erably well content at the result of my change.     I never witnessed such dodgery done
in the way of provant transmogryfying as at that same 222 Washington Street Brooklyn.
Then didn�t do such at Jersey, even.  /     Started the Hoax for Keating to-day, thus
Holmes is to give friendly warning to Mrs Paterson on behalf of Keating � namely that 
hath attributed his being told to quit to Keatings suggestion, influenced by �Tish�
(whom he sentimentalizeth with,)  and therefore Dunsiere hath sworn to �massacre� him
some night with his policemans bludgeon. (Fagan hath intimated it ^|already| & Keating 
ted to know �what he�d do in such a case.�)     Get him to buy a revolver, or
apply to a magistrate or something infernally foolish.     Dunsiere roars at the notion,
and agrees to do the mysterious business if he chances on him at night.  (Wrote
to Alf.				               /
