              could no more be crossed.   Stayed awhile
looking out at the most picturesquely wintry
scene, then merrily through the deep snow
on the ground, and to the music of the sleigh
bells which jangled all over the city; scamper-
ed to the frosty Battery, witnessing the while
the rescue of three adventurous varlets from
the river  by Whitehall boatmen.  Called 
at Castle Garden,  saw Baum, and heard
how the Island was frozen up, how boats 
had been upset by the ice &c.   Returned
up Broadway, called at Swinton and Fay�s
now in business as Engravers, neither of 
whom have I seen since the great Staten
Island excursion.    Left Alf there and
back to work and Franklin Street.
