Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 11, page 159, November 29, 1859

Description: Regarding Rawson Gill and news about the Pounden family.



Gouverneur name for the future, and is [Gladdy Gouverneur] at school. (Did I put down that Mrs G. [Elizabeth Gouverneur] was engaged to a Frenchman at the 14th St Boarding-House? As also to another man, a notorious scamp who figured disgracefully in a scandalous low case.)

Rawson [Gill] lives and loafs at [Catharine] Potter’s still. He has overmuch of his mother in him and I was a Nass to opine hopefully of such a breed. Old Mr Eldredge is residing at Mrs P’s with his son and daughter. He has some civic employment; has given up farming. The old lady will soon rejoin him. They hope, in time, to resume their former position on the island. The elder Pounden’s live in the house also, Mrs P supporting her Yahoo, who does not now get drunk, and appears only tacitly offensive. (I met the two coming home from church, subsequently, this same Sunday morning.) [William] Leslie as usual; on some other matrimonial “lay”; said to be negociating [sic] for a house cage to put the coming bird in. Marry! whether he’ll conclude it is too delicate, that it may moult and die, or possess exuberant vitality enough to peck at him, and so get scared off the bargain, who knows?

Mort Thomson has made over his child [Mark Thomson] —
