              supping, talking with Mr Greatbatch, Joe, and the boys; then, Joe bearing
me company to the Fulton Ferry, I crossed to Brooklyn.   Met Roberts
on the Ferry-boat, he would that I should go home with him and have a cigar
So an hour there fumigating and talking with him, wife, and two girls,
cousin to Butler.   Roberts at work on a drawing of Alf Waud�s sent on for
him to engrave for Gleason.   Roberts saith he thinketh that Gleason is losing
money by his pictorial.   /     To Dunsiers; awhile with Mrs D, then
Fagan came, and at about 10, turned in with him.  Very little sleep all
night, feeling abdominal dull, heavy, indigestible pains, barring repose.
  30. Tuesday.   Breakfast with them & Dunsier.  Crossed to New
York, to �Traveller� Office, corrected proofs, to Roberts & with him to one Lock,
in Beekman Street, who thinketh of getting up some Railroad Literature.
Thence to Greene St.  Mrs Pennoyer out.  So went to the old crib in Duane
Street, saw Mrs Holt, took a room, dined; out to Genins, to Holmes
(he away at Flushing,) back; supped, and thence, after a talk with
Martin out with him, and leaving him at West Broadway, went to Mul-
berry Street.  There an hour with them, then back,  Joe accompanying
me, and helping me to carry small baggage � good natured of him.   Gave
him three letters to copy, enlisting him in the great Gleason hoax.  By this
time the wretched Gleason hath the letters of Jerome de St Cyr & Voorhees, if
not others.         Bed about midnight.           At Holt�s again.  Oh
[unclear word] have mercy!   Wish I could spend a week at Chacombe now,
it would be like getting born over again .  Very sick, very weary, very
matagrabolized, and $10 in pocket.   Never mind; � shall kick
through it.   Wonder whether I ever shall have money?
