Description: Describes a visit to Joseph Richardson.

Transcription:

25. Tuesday. Working on a big drawing of house front for Lockington till 2, when “the Aztec” coming for it, let him have it. Down town. Called at Lantern unsuccessfully &c. Return to the room which [Joseph] Richardson had taken in Broadway for the sale of his pictures. The first days Auction was over, and I found him with [Alfred] Waud, in the spacious room, wherein, while we were exhibited the Aztec. There were still many pictures, framed and finished up &c. around the walls. Richardson was much disappointed & the poor result of the first days sale — He such pictures as had gone were sold at ridiculously low pricesStayed awhile, then on to Davis shop-place, which I could not find. Over to Brooklyn, on a fruitless and wearisome quest after his residence; drearily back about 9 or later, supped at Van Names, then to room & bed.
