the cuts, then to Picayune Office with them.   Bunnell &
Powell there, and ´┐ŻAllie Vernon´┐Ż a pretty girl who sends
verses to the Picayune, and whom I found afterwards at the

in return divers fictions about the stuffed owl descending
on the playing of a hand organ, to write editorials, on certain
mysterious occasions.   Carroll came.  /           Left, met
