Transcription:

To Averys, leaving block. To dinner. To [Cornelius] Mathews and to the Reveille. Had a row with Mathews (he being jealous of Charles’ influence,) in which I had the better, by far. An oily, encroaching, unloveable man. To the Lantern Office, then to [Thomas W.] Strongs. At the former, comes the printer, having received a lawyers letter, apropos of the article pitching into Lockwood, the prison ruler of Sing Sing, Head shaver, and tormentor by water. Case of “Libel.” Resolved to pitch in more next week. Good looking, well bearded [Alfred] Swinton came. Out with him. Calling at Strongs, saw him and [Charles] Weldon. Back to my room, then out again, and crossed to Brooklyn, by the Hamilton Ferry. Lovely, hot, sunny day. Found out the “Canara plaster mill” which [William] Barth wants drawn
