I leave “The World.”

[Harry Jen]nings the dog and rat celebrity. Returning per car with [Mortimer] Thomson, in talking of [Frank] Cahill he told me the circumstances of Cahill’s domiciliation with him. Cahill got his board and $3 per week for work to be done. Of course he got heavily in arrears. Mort stated that Cahill must be in his debt some $100. This induced his getting rid of Cahill. Mort is unquestionably ignorant of Cahill’s relations with the wet-nurse provided for Chips’ [Anna Thomson’s] baby [Mark Thomson], as of his brother [Clifford Thomson] succeeding Cahill in said nurses good graces. Found [Jesse] Haney in my room, who supped with me, then went off to the theatre. I wrote my reports, sent ‘em down by a friend of [George] Boweryem’s, opportunely going that way, and then to bed, tired and with a burning headache. A chill, raw dull day. Van Brest the artist who Hillard introduced me to is dead, cause they say, drink. The Tribune has published an item to the effect that Colonel [Hugh] Forbes, being discharged by [Giuseppe] Garibaldi for complicity with the ultra-republicans, is raving about Italy denouncing the hero-cheif [sic] and Victor Emanuel of Sardinia. Likely enough.

16. Tuesday. Office. A note from [Manton] Marble emancipating me — temporarily I suppose — from hack-reporting. To Butler’s cellar at Peck
