manner by Mrs E, (Parton�s aunt) on
the subject of the marriage, which is quite edifying.
As for Mrs Levison, she can�t keep her tongue from
open abuse when �Fanny� is mentioned.
25. Monday. A morning�s bit of a rush
up Broadway, and dropped in at the Waverly
with a book for Parton. Then to room & writing
all the variable day. Sunshine, cloud, drizzle, rain,
sleet and snow.
26. Tuesday. Wrote to Mr Greatbatch, and
thundering long letter to Alf Waud. Down town to
post-office in afternoon. Found W. Waud had
returned, and with him, Haney and Sol up.
Bleecker wards by 5 1/2, dropping in at Haney�s new
chamber � (the one formerly occupied by Bellew, op-
posite the Saint Nicholous,) and at the Ornithoryncus,
where we found Wurzbach eating sour kraut, and pre-
sently saw O�Brien. I to writing & drawing
in evening. A letter from Dillon. He and Hart
have become partners in a lithographic establishment, in
27. Wednesday. A brief rapid series of walks
about Washington square, well, hopeful and
happy, and profoundly grateful to God for it. Return
to work, with pen or pencil. Evening to Parton�s,
and there till 10 1/2. Fanny certainly talks with
greater freedom than I have ever heard before
