Transcription:

[Thomas] Powell. Called at [Cornelius] Mathews. To Mc A Fee’s for mahogany block. Met Mr Charles. Lockington &c. Afternoon’s close, went to Canal Street & had a warm bath. Return, found Davis. Joe [Greatbatch] called and walked to the South Ferry with me. Crossed to Brooklyn and called at Dunsier’s. Comegys & Miss Tamison there. Romping going on.

14. Wednesday. Day like unto life, opening sunny exhilarating and hopeful, to close dismally. How I detest and fear wet weather. The rainy circle of Dante’s Inferno would be an awful fate for me. I can’t be happy in wet weather. Perchance however it might be endurable — home, fireside and loving faces. [words crossed out] / Breakfasted royally on brown bread & water, then down town. Called at Mc A Fee’s, getting mahogany block. Met Lockington. To the “Lantern” Office, whither at 10 came [John] Brougham and Powell. Bye
