driver (totally severing the head from the body), injuring the firemen and demolishing the engine. Delayed three-quarters of an hour. Finally got out and walked to the ferry. The day was mild.

We walked about till well towards midnight—Johnston and his folks had been over to hear Stanley lecture (Brooklyn). Delivered picture to Johnston. All much struck with it as a likeness.
