Description: Regarding Frank Cahill's theory that Arthur Ledger has left New York for England under the assumed name, Alfred Lane.

Transcription:

[Arthur] Ledger gone to England.

the “Illustrated News.” Charley [Damoreu] says the speech at the Metropolitan was his primary offence, [Joseph] Brightly that he didn’t obey orders relative to a certain cut and was, generally, not worth his salary, of which [Frank] Leslie yet owes him $50.

9. Monday. Drenching rain. Down town in omnibus; to “Harper’s,” “Courier” Office, “Frank Leslie’s,” the “Illustrated News” &c. Got $5 for my “Tribune” article, after half an hour’s weary waiting in the office. Mort Thomson, his brother Clifford and [Frank] Cahill there. At “Nic-nax” office saw [Jesse] Haney and [Frank] Bellew. Returned up-town with [James] Morris. Sick and rather discouraged. Evening doing writing, a little of it. Sage came up with the intimation that Misses [Sarah] Maguire and [Olive] Waite were below; with Morris went downstairs for half an hour. M Morris, [George] Boweryem and Cahill in my room till 2. A.M. Cahill has been to the Steamship Company Office of the vessel which left New York for Liverpool on Saturday, the “City of Washington” and looked over the passenger list, where he found recorded the name, Alfred Lane — same initials as Ledger’s. His linen and possibly trunks were marked with them. I’ve little doubts as to the correctness of our surmises.
