lington in Broadway, who told them that Morris
had returned to New York.          I attributed lit-
tle Maguire�s visit to an expectation that I had
seen him.        Half an hour after their departure

Bryant is in Boston, he here, dwelling for the
present at his sister�s; again adrift on the
literary market.      I was glad enough to see
him; he stayed till 8, supping with us.

Maguire, and find it difficult to credit it.      Out
by 8, to 16th street, and returning at 9 �
dropped in at 745.  Only Sally, Eliza and
Anne were present, Mat and her father having
gone to visit the Hayes�, which accounted for Ha-
ney�s not redeeming his promise of supping with me
