looking goodhumored, sat in the direction

of �Tribunes� &c. for consultation for my
present task, then down-town, to the
�Evening Post� offie.  Saw Godwin and
Maverick, anon Henderson, getting $5

ficent reading rooms,� and of �poor weak Cahill
with nothing to do in this merciless metropo-
lis.�       Return; in-doors writing all the rest
