27. Saturday. Out to tailor’s &c. Writing during the afternoon and till midnight, only going out for half an hour to Picton’s after tea.

28. Sunday. In doors writing, article about Street-Sweepers. To [E.H.] Chapin’s, then to 745 [Broadway]. The family and Haney there, he returned from a day’s journey and visit to Boston.
