the advent of Butler.        Fires along the
levees, burning cotton; half a dozen
vessels blazing on the river; and
the streets adjacent to it sticky and 
slippery with molasses.  The populace 
carrying off barrels of it, and of su-
gar.        Preparations made by the �roughs�
for burning the city � desire of the
mob to do it.      Flush times in New 
Orleans and the present.     All classes
throve and led a prosperous life � funda-
mentally based on the labor of the slave.      
Mrs Baker�s song  �The Southern 
Stars� � she now a Unionist.     Left
them after supper and by car down-
town.      Met Ripley in rotunda, ca
Schell and B. Hills.     Talk.     Out
for oysters then upstairs and to-bed 
by midnight.
  9.  Monday.   Breakfast at Wibel�s 
with Hayes.     Together to the Delta
Office, looking over New York papers.
