22. Sunday. Reading, idling and drawing till afternoon;
then called at George and Joe�s boarding-house. There, talking
together on the door �stoop� at the back of the house till past 5.
In the Evening, they calling on me, we took a walk by the
riverside; meeting the boys by the way. Looked in at Grove
Street, in returning.
23. Monday. At work on �Mose� all day. Fred came in
the afternoon to go on an errand to New York for me, which
by leaving the money behind him he made a mess of. George called
and we had a walk together.
24. Tuesday. To Bobbett and Edmond�s, with the first block of
Mose, and with the latter to Stringer and Townsend�s. Talk thereon
with Stringer, also as to my supplying illustrations to a Guide book
projected by the Erie Railway Company. (200 miles of fine country,
free ticket to travel hither and thither and 225 dollars.) Made
a call at Harpers. (the methodist book publishers who have made
a fortune by republishing English books, � and some of them of
a most trashy and libertine sort.) Saw a cart overturn,
very neat spell. Back to Jersey City. Evening a walk
by the river with George and Joe, afterwards the former only
Grove Street, and a call there. At dominoes in a little grog-
shop, temporarily occupied by Wing, a fellow boarder of George�s.
