Reportorial and Miscellaneous.

room, spite of the talking. Back by 12.20.

I have joined the reportorial corps at just the hardest-working period of the year, but must not growl about it.

27. Thursday. Office [New York World], there till past noon, then up-town. In-doors, writing till 5, then to Palace Garden, calling at 745 [Broadway], for ticket, and having others for [Charles] Blondin’s exhibition, which the girls [Sally, Matty, and Eliza Edwards] couldn’t avail themselves of, “because it was in the daytime,” when they work. I saw all of them in the store, smiling and saucy and Sally whispered that today was Somebody’s birthday — little [Thomas] Nast’s.

Saw [Thomas] Mc. Elrath and others at the fair again, note-taking &c. Crossing Washington Square, met W. Leslie (recently returned with his wife [Marion Leslie] from Canada. His wife had a nice little estate there, he said.) He lives now in 9th street, No. 59. It was a dull afternoon, of a dull day, promising rain. Writing awhile after supper, then out to the east side of the town to procure three Republican nominations. Took ‘em down, returned in 6th avenue car by 9, had ale at the “Optimus” and to bed by midnight. My [J.H.] Siddons’ report was reprinted in to-day’s “Herald,” with editorial comment, but without acknowledgment.
