___ &c. I believe it�s true for my part. A woman who
believes not in God, is monstrously vain, full of hates &
vanities & infinitesimal spites would be a strumpet.
Writing, drawing &c all day. Don�t recollect detail.

Out with Powell, no go. Return to room. Joe called in the

boarding house in Robinson Street, calling for Martin & a certain Cali-
fornian, all four then proceeding to Broadway where Joe purchased
a Colt�s Revolver, five barrel, paying for it & �fixings� $20,50.
Martin leaving us, we turned in the Shades, sat conversing for an
hour or so, then the Californian left � a good humored, brown faced
Western man was he, � had gone the Overland Route, from the
Mormon City, & had much to tell of digging & washing, of chasing
and slaying Indians � having first made his way to California in
1848. Parting with Joe at 10, I looked in at Beach
Street for an hour, then to room & bed.
