gave her some water, and anon fetched him her [word crossed out] bread, which not being enough I went for more. [word crossed out] She behaved a little riotously albeit good tempered, got my hairy cap in his her mouth, and I had to alternately make much of [word crossed out] and lick him her mildly. So I locked the door, and off to Franklin Street, to call on [Alfred] Waud. He not in, returned. Dog all right. Went off to Gymnasium. Waud there anon, [Joseph H.] Brightly & [Charles] Damoreau. Exercising till 10, ale afterwards. Returned by 11 1/2, dog all right under the table, went to bed myself, had to bid her “lie down” once or twice, then she went to sleep and so did I. If his her master don’t claim [word crossed out], and she’ll stay, I’ll keep him her, she’s a good looking, big, brown and white fellow, with a fine head, and can stand with her paws on table, and head up to your shoulders.

10 Sunday. Up by 7, dog rampant, sniffling about for lost master. Let him her out on staircase once or twice, but she came back. To breakfast, brought a lot of scraps for dog, which she walked into at a great rate. Waud & the two Browns [Albert and Alfred] came. A walk to and about the Battery. Dined alone at Erfords, then to room. Brightly and Waud came. Out with them, and parting strolled up to Grand Street, calling in on [James P.] Neagle & [Charles F.] Briggs. Thence to Mr [Joseph] Greatbatch, where I tarried till 8 or so, thence to room & dog. Damoreau & brother came, out with them & parting,
