Monday, June 9, 1890

     5.50 P.M. W. in his room—reading the Post. Out in his chair today. "A bad day," he said, "a bad headache the day through." Looked dragged out. No carriage yesterday or today: had directed the man to come Tuesday or Wednesday.

     Times half-column yesterday (evidently from Jim Scovel)—made up bodily almost from the birthday book. W. explained: "There was ten dollars in it—that was enough: those fellows need no other inspiration."

     I got the menu from the chef at Reisser's and left manuscript for card at Billstein's. W. "curious to see how it works."

     Looked over the German Democrat one-and-a-half-column printed on his birthday (I had it with me). Questioned me with respect to its tendency: "Is it good? Is it favorable?"
