[Henry] Addey wants me to edit "Momus."

A message to me from Addey, through [Frank] Cahill, requesting me to see him tomorrow night, about assuming the editorship. He wants to clear out [Charles] Rosenberg, [Charles] Gaylor and [Charles] Briggs by this week. Also a request that I should write a political article, in place of Briggs, to go in for Wednesday — anything I did should go in. Shall see Addey, but not write the article, till something definite is done.

One thing about Lotty [Kidder], I haven't put down. She told me of it as we sat on the stoop, in the sunny morning. That privation and misery, while in New York, had made her sick, producing ulcers, which still adhered to her. I asked her where, with "Lotty, you can tell me anything, you know?" The answer came, "On my wont womb."

What strange confidences have I had with this girl! Never, I think, were such, without sexual relations of which I am innocent.
