Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 8, page 178, approximately April 30-May 10, 1857

Description: Mentions that William Levison's sister sent a bill to Mary Levison after his death for helping to care for him.


[William] Levison's sister, a common servant like woman who, it appears, assisted during his sickness and that of the child [Ellen Levison] sent in a bill to the widow [Mary Levison] for watching her brother. I have had a letter from [Joseph] Greatbatch, principally about their fencing in their farm. Also one from Alf Waud, after a great gap of a couple of months or so. He is very busy and apparently prosperous. Talks of [B.G.] Stone coming to Boston in a new suit, "dove-colored over-coat lined with pink satin," to get money ($1500 he says) from his father for his to be bride's trousseau. I suppose Miss Dubois the fair Catskiller. Will [Waud] is working in Boston still and — taking it easy.

I have a letter from Hannah [Bennett], describing her sister [Charlotte]’s marriage to little [William] Gazey.



10. Sunday. With [Frank] Cahill and [Jesse] Haney to [Frank] Bellews. (He had burnt his hand rather severely overnight, in experimenting with phosphorus apropos of a novel suggestion for illuminated advertising. [Robert] Bonner of the Ledger came up to see him about it. I was there.) An East River walk subsequently, the three of us. Drawing the rest of the day, having to do Bellew's "Picayune" work.

11. Monday. To the Masons', Beekman St, Express Office, Radway's etc. Saw the proesses
