duplicated Heylyn�s friendly reception and
we all had dinner together; after which I re-
turned with Heylyn to his shop.     At 4, he
accompanied me to Rogers� office; where, find-
ing its occupant within, Heylyn left me.       Rogers
is a very hearty man of perhaps forty, with
some grey in his hair and beard; he recognized
me almost immediately.    We talked about Jim,
Fanny and 745 and he invited me to join a
proposed pic-nic on the following morning.  Re-
turning to Heylyn, at 6 we went home to supper,
playing whist afterwards, with the two women
till 10 o�clock; when Heylyn and I retired to
an upper room.   But it was a good hour before 
he could go to bed, for Mrs. H., down-stairs, sud-
denly determined not to share that of her female
companion, so that Heylyn had to coax and remon-
strate and with her.      When he came up to me
he was half-dismayed, half-exasperated.

Heylyn�s.    Back to dinner at 1 �, returning
in the afternoon, by appointment, to Rogers�.
