1. Thursday. Made sketch of Louis Napoloen
Coup d�E�tat. Joe and a fellow employee calling
while at it. Finished, dressed, and out. Called
at Mrs Kidders, sat chatting apropos of the day.
Mason called in. Out, through the glad frosty, snow
covered streets to Canal. Looked in at Dobs. Thence
to Holts, for Mr Hart. He not within. In the parlor
&c. Mrs Holt, Blood &c recieving their New Year�s
calls. Back to home and coffee, all alone in the
dining room. Out again, walk down Broadway,
on the Battery. Castle Garden. Returning passing
Washington Market had the purse-dropping scoundrels
try their vocation on me, (for the third time, nigh to
the same spot.) Evening Joe called, and then Mr
Hart. Out in company, stroll down Broadway.
Then to Reade Street, Whiskey & �Punch.�
