Description: Regarding a drinking party of Bohemians at Clover Hill.



The Bohemians at Clover Hill.

18. Thursday. In-doors till 5, then a walk down town, met Oliver Hillard and passed Matty [Edwards] and her father [George Edwards]. My “All the Year Round” story reprinted in “Harper’s.” In the evening for an hour to Edwards’ — only Matty and Jack [Edwards] in, the rest gone to bed.

19. Thursday. Down-town, to Harper’s. [John] Bonner, [Charles] Nordhoff and “the Major” — got a capital reception, walked up to “Herald” Office with Bonner. To “Courier” Office: [James] Smith, [Frank] Cahill and [Jesse] Haney there, the latter telling us of a Clover Hill excursion in company with [Frank] Bellew, [Fitz James] O’Brien, George Arnold, Frank Wood, [Jack] Sears and [Charles] Gayler; a party of the latter’s organizing. They played football, cricket, &c. dined, drank and sang and were charged $6 each for their dinner; partly in consequence of O’Brien’s stipulating for “green seal” champagne, partly for the dinner that was got but not eaten t’other day. Gayler came into office, red-faced and burly, as usual. Up-town. Writing a little, in the afternoon; not well. Evening, Haney came to sup with us. Out with him; I to 14th Street, saw [Henry] Addey. He has engaged [Charles] Briggs to do daily humorous (?) political article, Gayler to work regularly, in the office of “Momus”
