engravers &c, dined, return, drew Reveille cut after seeing
Mathews, (who was irked at my drawing for Picayune.) Waud
came, to Shelleys with him, supped. Left him at 8, and
went to Beach Street. A room full of folks, Mrs K there.
Lotty came down anon, and sang. Stayed till nigh 11,
some of the folks going. Baby hath been sick and like to die,
a �Nurse� giving him laudanum. His father has been there,
was indeed in the room when I came, albeit I knew it not,
till afterwards Lotty told me. She sang very sweetly this night.
Talk with one of the old boarders at Mrs Leave�s, whom I met
there. Mrs K concocted some excellent milk punch, and alto-
gether it was a pleasant finale to the day.
14. Thursday. Drawing till 1. A letter from Barth.
Down town, to Lockingtons, towards Dickinsons, when I met an in-
dividual whom I had seen at Wilkins� in Brooklyn, when I
visited him there. He was very particular in his inquiries about
them, and after accompanying him some distance, (in the rain) I
took him to Holmes�. / Called at Engravers, then dined,
then to Lantern, then Reveille Offices � through pouring rain all
the way. Hose purchasing &c, then to room. Supped at
Sweeneys, called at Royals, back to room. Wrote letter
