[words crossed out]

I have called on [Frank] Royal the gold-beater. He is preposterous, and his sons sturdy fellows. Met [Fitz James] O'Brien up at [Frank] Bellew's one morning, and he spoke of there being a warrant out against him, in consequence of one of a party of fellows, with whom he was dining, having emptied a chamber pot out of window upon some ladies who were passing in Broadway! — [Henry] Hart and Dillon [Mapother] will probably visit New York next month.

I have a recent letter from Hannah [Bennett] — God bless her! — kinder, truer and honester is there none, even in dear old England. I'll try to deserve her and her love.

Richard Bolton is in Canada by this time. He started on the 6th of this month, for Montreal, per Anglo Saxon steamer. George [Bolton] and the Conworths follow in July or August.
