Help deciphering names on ship manifest #usa #general #names

I have been unable to decipher the name on the manifest listing for my great-grandfather, Simon (later Sam) Sobel, of the person he was joining (and who had paid his passage).  See below for the manifest page link to the document on Ancestry. On line 4, it lists "cousin" followed by a name, which Ancestry recorded as W Walter, although I'd be surprised if that's correct.  I'm reasonably certain the address is 25 Harrison Street, although I didn't find anything for this cousin when I looked at the1910 census record for that address (my great-grandfather arrived in 1908).  I don't know anything about my great-grandfather's relatives in the U.S., except for my grandmother and her brother, so I'd be grateful for any help figuring out this name..

The above was my great-grandfather's second arrival at Ellis Island. He'd also come in 1905,  At that time, he listed his sister, whose name I read as Freide Breindl, who lived in Brooklyn as the person he was joining, Unfortunately her address is listed as a PO Box, and I have been unable to trace her with either that surname or with the surname Sobel.  Any suggestions that might lead to information about her would be most welcome.  See line 29 at
