November 14 Monday – Sam’s notebook on the alarm system: “It was right in the morning & wrong in the afternoon.”

“Spoke of Louise Messina (in bed in morning Nov. 12) first time in 3 years. Two days later got a letter from Andrew Langdon in Chicago dated 12th, asking indirectly for a contribution of money for her” [MTNJ 2: 402]. NoteAndrew Langdon was a cousin of Livy’s and a prominent Buffalo businessman [402n161].

William L. Aden for Harper & Bros. wrote to Sam: “Now I really believe in the Osgood story; though at first I feared it was a wicked myth. / Thanks for your jolly letter. I will write to Osgood at once. Meanwhile won’t you tell him to send me something?” [MTP].
