5. Monday. In doors all
day writing with Schell � hard
at work. The nuisance John-
stone in our room. Burt up again,
whom Johnstone actually wanted to
dictate his account of the explosion
and burning of the Westfield
to him, literally. (Yesternight he,
Howell & Hayes had got Cozzens
story.) Revolted against Johnstone�s
surveying his head in my light. Names
of persons on board the M. A. Board-
man copied ^|from my record| by B. Hills and John-
stone. Went out for a meal,
on my return from which Schell & I
expelled Johnstone, with as much ci-
vility and as little as was necessary.
At work steadily until past 3 4 on
6. Tuesday.} the next morning.
Three hours sleep then scribbling again.
Enter Johnstone the offensive with a
story that the Mary A. Boardman
will sail or New York at noon. Great
