If I were in love with her, I should stand a very good chance, perhaps; as it is, knowing, as she does, that I don’t love her, she is none of that impressionable temperament to receive damage thereby. There’s a little vanity, a certain amount of liking and a sense of triumphant opposition over the objectors, in her regard for me. Meantime I must assimilate the grain of truth in [Jesse] Haney’s suspicions (you can always learn something from such) and be careful of drifting into a false position. How easy I might assume one!

8. Monday. [New York World] Office. Out. Met [Charles] Gayler and Joe Harper at Crook and Duffs, the former slightly offensive, his normal condition — a little braggart, too, this time. Anon met Corbin. To Post-office, then up-town, to 4th street, the Burton Library sale. To office again after dinner, up town in car with [Edmund] Stedman, to his room in 4th street, then together to the Burton sale. Webb of the “Times” there and others. To supper. Rondel up and anon Marsden and a Frenchman. Entertained ‘em with whiskey and smoke till 8 ½, then off to sale again, returning by 10 to write up report. Down town with it and up again by midnight. Weary night-journeys are these and I don’t like ‘em.
