Description: Mentions that Sol Eytinge has left Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper.


misery. Up till 2 or 3, then couldn't sleep.

8. Saturday. Yesterday with additions. [George] Robert's down, spite of surgical operation, ridding him of "carbuncle boil." To Omnibus Office — am doing a good deal for them in the way of drawing — they pay promptly. Drawing at night till 12. [Frank] Cahill came up to see me this afternoon. Looks in better health and general condition, is living at [Mortimer] Thomson's, employed by Mort on some "History," written to order, with more work in perspective. Says that Sol Eytinge has left [Frank] Leslie, and threatened to lick him when he has paid up $60, which is owing to Sol. The row was about unpunctuality in cashing up, of course. Sol has seceded to the Harpers'. I'm glad Cahill's got away from Bob Gun & Houston accociations. He smoked a pipe or so, while I got a doze, then went off. Drawing, bathing, and to bed by 11 — dog-tired

9. Sunday. Drawing on wood and writing all the day till 11 P. M. with the exception of going to hear [E.H.] Chapin.

10. Monday. As deathly cold as though the gate of the Scandinavian Hell were open and all the icy devils of the North playing Boreas. Overslept myself till 10, down town with frozen beard, to Constellation — confound the long name, I'll abbreviate it in future — & Omnibus' Offices. To [Thomas] Strong's also. Sold story, left two days back, with illustration, for $10 — beat me down two. Return up town by 3.
