Description: Mentions that his story, ''Yorkshire Tragedy,'' was accepted by Household Words.


a $100 or so, to give his [Frank Pounden's] worthless father, just before his departure for Hayti, which money has not been paid yet. Maybe.

7. Monday. To New York with Frank, to Pic and Omnibus offices, taking cut from the former to the latter — I had got it engraved. [Thomas] Picton there — chaff and story-telling. To Mataran's.
