              11.  Wednesday.    Drawing till 2.     Down town after
dinner.    To Lantern Office.  Got $3 paid.    To tailors ordering
summer clothes.  Back, drawing.   Evening at Gymnasium.
Waud there.   Carroll &c.   Left at about 9 1/2 & to Beach
Street.    Talking with Mrs K and others.  Got daguerrotype.
Leaving, called in at Erfords for a glass of ale, Waud &
Damoreau there.       I wonder now, what Charley would have

But I told him not � why should I?
  12. Thursday.  Drawing.  Waud in room with me all
the morning.     Afternoon, little Edward Greatbatch came.   Out,

  13.  Friday.   Down town with some 16 or more drawings on
wood.   To Wells & Webb, then Harpers, anon Strongs.
