                   In the Gulf of Mexico.
I think Chancellor � during the prevalence of
that organized foolery and obscenity, which num-

Haney and Boweryem, as I had known before.
Boweryem had been �initiated� in Hills� presence,
and I heard all about it, and about the mock
duel in which my little friend was victimized,

the celebration of the 4th of July on Long Island,
in which Addey was burlesqued, and others.
Up till 11.      A wind-up in the Texan cabin,
as usual.
  11. Thursday.   A lovely morning, shoal

progress.       Passed the Arago, in the distance

1. A. M.  Reading �Orley Farm.�  Scribbling.
Lunch with Shaw, the two Hamiltons, and
Judge Peabody.   On deck: sultry.     Loafing,
scribbling, reading.     Scribbling during the
evening in the saloon, with Hamilton emulating
me.     Vessel creaking, officers played cards.
Finished a letter to Charley.

warm, sunny weather.  Reading in a desultory
manner, loafing, smoking and general intimacy.
With Burt, Capt. Herbert and Gen. Hamilton.
