              lin Street, all being out, then a walk and back �home.�        /            In
the afternoon got a letter from Keating, whereby it appears he was not the
writer of the last missive, someone � (I suppose J B H having assumed

  17. Sunday.   The rain rained down in, not Maryland, but New York town
at such a rate that I could not stir out till the afternoon, then to Mul-
berry Street, and Mr Greatbatche�s.   Supped there, pleasantly, subsequently in
the even with Joe and the boys walked out. Left them at Leonard Street,
then alone to Franklin.  Had a bit of a row with the fat old woman, who

rest of us remain.   �Lotty�s� face is a fair one, in repose, as well as animation,
