              August.
  1. Friday.  Met Mr Hart & Dillon in Nassau St, on going to Holmes�
in the afternoon. Evening to Duane Street, and subsequently with both to
the tavern in Reade Street.   They just returned from Middletown, Jersey.
  2.  Saturday. At Holmes�s still.  Called in on Anderson.   Evening to
the little Dock, Brooklyn, Mr H & Dillon bearing me company.  Despatched
indignant supplication the third for clean shirts to the Island, then returned,

Fagan and with him to the Dunsiere�s (with whom he boards now.) Supped
there hearing edyfying things of the slanderous talk at Washington Street. So
