Transcription:

where it was accepted. Other things to do. With Cornelius Mathews to the Literary World Office, where he lent me his “Chanticleer” a [Charles] Dicken’s-sort of American story. [words crossed out]. He had yesterday been introduced to [Lajos] Kossuth. So had [John N.] Genin, whom I yesterday saw, about the pupil business. [words crossed out] To and fro about the Traveler Office; to Millers, having had a note from him, and then back to dinner. Wrote a letter to Mr [Henry] Hart. Evening drawing on the Reveille blocks.

10. Wednesday. Finishing the Reveille things, to Ann Street with ‘em, calling at Genins by the way. A brother of his like to die, so I couldn’t bother him. To Reveille Office. Got $3 from Barton; to Lockington’s, then to Traveler Office. Wrote notices for Holbrook, (at Hawkins confession of inf-eriority!) [words crossed out] Forms all ready; — couldn’t go to press yet, as the printers were engaged on other paper. To the Post Office. Back to Traveler. Then to [48] Franklin. Dined, then the brief afternoon hour purchasing things for fire — 2 Bushels of Coal, Shovel &c. Evening got fire after some difficulty, and then drew Reveille cut. Then fire went out from inattention. Wrote the preceding six pages, and now am going to bed, after head-washing.
