At Crook and Duff’s.

John McLenan in the store room below and after waiting for half an hour, talking, went up to Crook and Duff’s, then at high noon and full of people. [A.F.] Banks was there and presently joined us to introduce a Mr. [George] Phillips, recently appointed editor to the “Illustrated News,” the paper Alf Waud and Sol Eytinge are on. He is an Englishman, has written under the name of “January Searle.” [Joseph] Brightly came in and joined us. Banks was in a state of fluttered approbativeness, said privately to me that five such persons accidentally drinking to together it would be hard to parallel. I told [Frank] Bellew and his eyes laughed. While talking, young Frank Wood turned from the counter, at which he was seated on a stool, eating something, to shake hands with Bellew. Boy’s face he has still. With Banks and Bellew to go to “Momus” office, but met [James] Morris who reported [Henry] Addey out.
