5. Saturday. Down town with letters &c, then to the five Mercantile, finished six page article on “Punch” for our compilation book, and with it to [James] Partons. Met him at the door, gave it him, then to [132] Bleecker St. This morning a heavy and continuous snow storm let set in, far exceeding anything I have yet seen. All the rest of the day and night it lasted, and a wild night it proved.

6. Sunday. New York a half buried city, areas full, windows half hidden, carts covered and streets impassable. Out in the afternoon for walk. To [A.F.] Banks. With him to old office, then back to supper, and then together to O’Mana’s (or Montgomery’s) as he now wills to be designated.) I not well.

7. Monday. In doors all day writing. Sol [Eytinge] returning from down town tells that Parton is married to “Fanny Fern.” It occurred on Saturday afternoon or evening. Wurzbach up, at night, with a drawing on wood from Alf Waud to take to [Frank] Leslie, and note.

8. Tuesday. Wrote a note to [Alfred] Swinton requesting him to cash up balance for books, due last August. To Leslie’s & saw Hitchcock. To Post Office. Met Sol. Up town wards together. Looked in at “Young Sam” office, parted in Broadway at Wileys. I took bath at Canal Street, then Bleecker. Down town again in the evening, to old room [290 Broadway] to fetch chair. Streets Arctic. Sleighs everywhere. Looked in at [Matthew] Whitelaws. [George] Arnold and [George] Yewel in our basement on my return.
