ving her happy home� and the whole family are
savage at it, on the grounds that �he is only a
poor Lawyer�s clerk� as the amiable George
had it, in Canada, whither, if they can, the
family will export cunning little Sarah � pos-
sibly for John Conworth�s benefit. Gardiner,
says my mother, has a better character than
any brother of hers and supports his old
mother. Mary Ann has written home; our
father is no better in health, �looking very
ill.� Down town; at Ross and Tousey�s,
met F. Leslie. At Vanity Fair office saw
�Artemus Ward� Brown, present editor, having

Up town; writing. Haney up in the evening,

are out drinking (and worse) together again.
Cahill will die like Welden, after all.
