[words crossed out]. [Joseph] Woodward out of town. Then to Wall Street. Then Swinton and Fay’s then to dinner. Out again in the afternoon. To Lockingtons. With him through the mud to White Street, where Astrologer [C.W.] Roback lives, who having offered $4 for the Magic block we decided to sell it, of course. But there were 15 or 20 women waiting the rascal’s leisure, to be conjured with, so we came away.

10. Tuesday. Lockington came with $3 from Roback. Halved it — had mutural beer and pie. Worked all day, 9 comic initials, four rebuses and drawing. To Reveille, and to [Thomas W.] Strongs — Got $11 from latter.
