We were finally put out in the A.M. - & [[strikethrough]] St. J [[/strikethrough]] I found myself more lit up than ever before though I had had only one cocktail & 1 1/2 Tom Collins (Mr. Collins & Tom Jr.). It must have been a fatal mixture because I felt very ill & dizzy in bed - & didn't even realize that poor Alan had paid for everything until the next a.m., & I was furious at St J & H.

Stewart was very disagreeable but taught me a lot. I feel he is bored with teaching me - mostly because I come so seldom [[strikethrough]] & he [[/strikethrough]] because of Warneke, & is finally so sick of doing it at all that he doesn't mind whom I work with.
