5. Friday. Traveler Office best part of the morning. In returning to Franklin met [William] Barth. Holbrook came, and knocked a hole into chimney, and put up stove for me. Barth left.

6. Saturday. Down Broadway, beholding the preparations for the entrance of [Lajos] Kossuth. O cheerful, sunny, bracing day, blue sky overhead. Flags, banners and inscriptions waving from housefronts, throngs of people hurrying about with [word crossed out] un-business looks on their countenances. At the Broadway Theatre was a banner with the finest denunciatory inscription which I think could be found throughout [William] Shakspere, The actors [Bill] Reynolds and [Charley] Moorhouse whom I afterwards questioned
