The weather being almost sultry.   In the Ro-
tunda.      A proposition from A. G. Hills, to go
to Berwick Bay, in the La Fourche country to-

Hamilton and Schell, also Herbert to the St

of Shaw and Leland; talk of Banks rule
as contrasted with Butler�s.  To room and 
scribbling up diary.

Lafourche trip.   With Schell and A. G. Hills

stroll about the city, alone, returning by 11 1/2
to take a tod with Howell, then to my room.
