intention of exporting her delightful son, Albert,
thither.      Down town, to Harper�s; left story with
Bonner; saw Guernsey � hadn�t read story I left

by cars to near Alf Waud�s residence.    The house,

the occasional, pretty general, board of Mrs J and
Mrs Sexton.           I found the children disporting

a couple of blocks with me, to the car.   Back
to New York and per omnibus up-town by 3 �.
