May 23.—Received strange note from Gowing; he said: “Offended?
not a bit, my boy—I thought you were offended with me for losing
my temper. Besides, I found after all, it was not my poor old
uncle’s stick you painted. It was only a shilling thing
I bought at a tobacconist’s. However, I am much obliged
to you for your handsome present all same.”
