My Story reprinted in “the Times.”

just published number, wanting copy and requesting me not to confine myself to my stipulated $9 worth. To Crook and Duffs. Met George Arnold there, as yesterday, when I found him in company with long Frank Wood, who has coarsened considerably in exterior as morally, and William Winter, poetaster to the “Saturday Press,” to whom I was introduced, and who seemed to know me. Arnold spake of “the Phalanx” and of the recent death of Warren’s wife, in or after child-birth. [A.F.] Banks was adjacent, talking to [Charles] Gayler the redfaced. This yesterday. Today [Fitz James] O’Brien was with Arnold; and, within the restaurant, [Frank] Cahill addressed me, presently sitting down to sherry-cobblers I got beside Wood who seemed shy and sulky, probably at the contrast presented by “Vanity Fair” with “Momus,” for both publications were there. O’Brien loitered in again, but as usual we cut one another mutually. [Charles] Welden came, addressed me and Cahill, and I went off with him to Lovejoy’s, where he had an appointment with a “Times” man, who told me my “All the Year Round” Story had been reprinted in the weekly edition of that paper. [Charles] Seymour is in Europe — Germany. Up town in sunny Broadway, passed pretty Matty [Edwards] and her father [George Edwards].
