Description: Mentions having dinner with William Barth.

Transcription:

Lantern, full page one; on wood. [William] Barth came, being on a visit up town, which visit being rendered abortive by his not having the address, he returned, and going down to Nassau Street we dined together, luxuriously; (turtle & strawberries and cream) Walked down Broadway with him; called at Dickinsons with block, left Barth at Chamber Street and returned to room. Work hard till 6 or so when I finished big block. [William] Roberts called. Out about 7, meditatively down Broadway, the hot bright sunset casting long shades athwart the Park, and lighting up the faces of the wayfarers. A lovely close to a lovely day. Met [D.W.] Holly (the young Publisher of the Democratic Review) imbibed with him, walked back till near Chamber Street, when he left. Supped at Van N’s, and then into the Park. Tammany Hall illuminated and a band
