Description: Mentions meeting Joseph Richardson and Arthur Mason, and Mary Levison's condition after the death of her husband William Levison.

Transcription:

18. Wednesday. To [Frank] Bellews. Returned. Drawing all the dull, dreary, windy day.

19. Thursday. A letter from George Clarke. To Bellew's twice.

20. Friday. Met young Jerrold at Bellew's this evening. A goodish looking furtive, secretive sort of fellow, just returned from Nicaragua and [William] Walkerism. I don't think there's anything in him. Bellew justifies his (Jerrold's) running away from his wife, saying she used to lick him.

21. Saturday. Sent off cuts to Andrew. Down town considerably. Hard up for money.

22. Sunday. To [James] Parton's, [Jesse] Haney joining me after dinner. All out for a long walk in the afternoon, "Fanny [Fern]" only about. Called unsuccessfully at [Frank] Pounden's in the evening.

[23. Monday through 24. Tuesday] Drawing and overhauling P. N. Y. B. H. Mrs [Mary] Levison came to the house. Looks "very well," talks "quite lovely" and appears generally taking stock of her condition and content with it. Poor old [William] Levison!

25. Wednesday. Met [Joseph] Richardson, the Yorkshireman, fellow-boarder at Holts in 1850. He lives in Philadelphia and spake of [Henry] Hart coming on here in May. Met little [Arthur] Mason, also, (husband of Jane Gibson.) Out of employ, talked of writing for the newspapers (!) and going to England.
