drawing till midnight. Not over well all day.

15. Wednesday. Down town to Bunnell & Price’s, talking with the former when in came the indefatigable dodging unveracious man of all work [Thomas] Powell, with rhyming Christmas “Pick” celebration. Off with Bunnell, by Omnibus to Division Street, there to Ludlow, calling on [Edwin A.] Weed about big block on which he hath been immolating himself of late, staying up o’ nights, (or sooth so, whilk renders it doubtful, as he is given to lying.) To my room, met Woodpecker Thatcher, gave him cuts. Did chores, lit fire &c, dined at Sweeny’s, down town again. Return, made drawings on wood, two, [Dillon] Mapother came at 4, or so, anon Charley Brown & [Joseph H.] Brightly, Charley having to work at the “Illustrated News” the night, willed that I should accompany his sister [Emma Brown] and brother to the social party before spoken of, but I declined. Supped with Dillon at the “Live & let live,” then to [Frank] Royals, talking with him and Bush hours twain, then to room of [Alfred] Waud, here he & [Augustus] Fay were working. I read aloud a recently recieved [received] letter from [William] Boutcher. Adjourned, all four to the “Shades,” ale & rarebits &c. Walked with Dillon to the Jersey City ferry, returning at midnight
