its advance, to sketch for the paper.   An interview,
appointed for the morrow.    At Crook and Duff�s
found Edge.     To the Evening Post office; saw Williams
and Godwin.     Up town with Edge; he to Scribners to
get copy of his book �Slavery Doomed,� published in

host to make a big fire, in the second he is an unquiet,
restless bedfellow.

rather to that of Christopher Morse and Skippon,
his partners.    He wasn�t it; has been on jury duty
