and Brightly for whom I called to supper. To Office
again, subsequently, with Waud. I writing. Pain gone
but horribly weak.
22. Tuesday. Drawing & down town. To Franklin
Street for meals. Welden called, requesting me as I intended
to hear Theodore Parker lecture at the Tabernacle this night,
to take his wife also. Down town with him, to the �Times�
Office; � introduced to Raymond the Editor. Office again.
Evening to the Lecture, with Mrs Welden. �Twas on
�The Caucasian Race & Anglo Saxonism.� First of the
varieties of race, and superiority of the one chosen, then
historical of its branches, and their migrations; of the
Teutonic stock, and thence immediately to the Anglo &
American Saxon. A good lecture, with some bold out-
speakings anent Slavery.
23. Wednesday. Brown returns from Boston; and
I having to give up occupation of his room, and the indecisive
mistress of the boarding house having played fast & loose about
the room designed for me, I quit. There�s a fellow at
that house who has brains & can talk well. One Robinson
a tall, black haired, haggard looking Virgininian. He
has been in the Army, and travelled extensively & seen
much. What ever subject may be broached, he can talk on it
