writing a letter to Heylyn, full of gigantic flaws, setting
forth how on my return from Genessee I had found the block
on which this house is located burnt to the ground; also 
divers items of startling import anent our English acquaintances,
how Boutcher was imprisoned in Rome for pitching into three
monks who were taking liberties with an old woman in the
ruins of the Coliseum; how he flattened one�s nose to his face
with a big stick & how another bit his ear off.       How
Purdue had bolted for Australia with a mans wife. And
how Stansby had married an old woman and turned Pussyite
parson &c            Which laudable & truthful performance
completed, and it being past 11, I�m going to my
virtuous box � may the musquitos have mercy on me!
