2. Friday. Took sketch to Barton, accepted.
Lockingtons, Traveller Office &c. Avery�s. After-
noon out again after drawing. Castle Garden.
Met Beukman. Pencil buying. In at Strongs.
Some writing to do for his �Whittlings of Jonathans
Jack Knife.� Reveille. Drawing during evening
for a short time, then with Holbrook who had come
home and supped with me to the Broadway
Theatre, to see Lola Montes, who has come here
to make profit of her [word crossed out]�s notoriety. A dull
performance, she excelling neither as a dancer or a
handsome woman. The latter she may have been.
The audience neither condemnatory or
enthusiastic. Farce afterwards.
3. Saturday. Putting Reveille subject on wood.
Little Edward Greatbatch came, with a letter for
me from England. Barth called in the after-
noon. Out with him. To Reveille Office. Got
