Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 8, page 170, March 26-31, 1857

Description: Mentions meeting Robert Bligh and his wife at Frank Pounden's house.


[26. Thursday through 27. Friday] Sickish, matagrabolized and nervous. One of these days a long ramble among Hoboken rocks, which did me good. I'm too tired to put down matters, but have much to think of. [Frank] Pounden called.

28. Saturday. Down town twice amid the blinding, choking dust-simoan of this never cleansed city. Saw [Frank] Bellew in the afternoon, walked up-town with him and young Jerrold.

29. Sunday. To Bellews, then per car, downtown and to Brooklyn, at Pounden's invitation. Rawson Gill came over also. A Mr and Mrs Robert Bligh were present, he a good-humored young Irishman, she a handsomish Irishwoman. A pleasant day; nice dinner, kindly folks, long walk in the afternoon, cigars and a cheery glass of rum and water. Pounden’s baby a trump — didn't cry once all day. He has taken a little house, a block or so nearer to the ferry.

30. Monday. Overhauling P. N. Y. B. H till 5, then a walk. Work in the evening.

31. Tuesday. A letter from Andrew. To Bellews, and down town with him by 1. To Wells and Webb, Pic Office &c, Masons', then uptown. An enclosure from Andrew containing all the proofs of the remaining cuts — save mine, which Bellew has yet to draw. They look very well. To [Edwin A.] Weed's house in the evening.
