Dick Bolton is in Brooklyn, and has been calling on me, twice, thrice during my absence. [Alfred] Swinton visited me; paid him for wood cuts. Met [Hugh] Forbes in at [Thomas] Paterson's Office — (the smaller ex-European one.) He abused Russell and spake of his daughters returning to Europe. Mrs [Celina] Jewell has called. She and her daughter [Miss Celina Jewell] are living in Wooster Street, the latter sick. Lastly, on Friday night, [Henry] Hart and Dillon Mapother called, having that day arrived from the west.
