1. Monday. Down town with sketches to Harpers. Hither
and thither, met Rawson Gill, Wurzback, saw Woodward
in at the printing office, went to Frank Leslie�s, saw
Sol Eytinge, thence to Harpers again for blocks (five) and
up-town with Haney. Wrote to Alf Waud.
2. Tuesday. In doors till the afternoon. Drawing, writing.
Cahill informs me that he is a spiritual medium, and gives an
account of his development �as sick� at Arnold�s, t�other night!
3. Wednesday. In-doors till evening, drawing and nervous.
With Haney to �Hope Chapel� intending to hear Lola Montez lec-
ture, but the place was already filled. So went to Edwards�.
The talk ran on the feeling entertained by this country towards
England. I hold it to be antagonistic, and think when English-
men try to believe the reverse they indulge in a mischievous delusion.
No country loves England, but she�ll hold her own in spite of
them, for she is better, braver and freer than they are.
4. Thursday. To Pounden�s office, and, hearing that he was
sick, to Brooklyn. Found both him and his wife in seperate
beds, though in the same room, she having been prostrated for a
fortnight, by a horribly scalded foot. Pounden bilious and quin-
sied. Stayed till near 4, went to their doctor, and then retur-
ned to New York, meeting Parton & Fanny by the way. Tired
out, hungry and nervous to a painful degree. Dropped in at
Edwards �and Jewells at night.
5. Friday. Out early. To Harper�s, Pic Offie, Pounden�s.
Still abed, he better, wife worse. To Doctors again and returned
to New York. Ill and trying to draw the rest of the day.
