Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 11, page 30, June 24-26, 1859

Description: Describes Edward Welles.



[Edward] Wells is quite bold, though they say — I don't know whether in earnest — younger than I am. Bearded, grave, quiet, yet with fun in him — that's Wells. A good fellow, better than his idol [Mortimer Thomson], who is a good fellow too in his way, but has been too much petted and patted, by mother [Sophy Thomson], "Chips [Anna Thomson]" & Co. Grace [Eldredge] will introduce another element there, I know. Got most of these details — the facts — from [Frank] Cahill who evidently likes Wells better than Mort.

25. Saturday. With Cahill down town. To Century & Pic Offices, founded [Frank] Bellew at the latter. Together to Crook and Duff’s. Joined by Whiting. This fellow besides his other delightful qualities is a tremendous bore. He has recently got kicked from his post as treasurer at the Metropolitan theatre, I believe for some knavery. Fred Cozzens ("Mr Sparrowgrass") came in; introduced to him by Bellew, to my real pleasure. Up town to dinner, writing &c; returned by 5. To Post-Office, tailors, Pic &c. With Bob Gun, [James] Morris and Billington round to Crooks' again, where Bellew still was, with Hamilton the English architect and others. Saponaceous man, Hamilton.) Cahill called (at [132] Bleecker) after supper, stayed an hour or so. To [Dr. Edward] Dixon's, he leaving me at the house. Dixon cashed up for article.

26. Sunday. Chores and scribbling. Called on Cahill in the afternoon and with him to 16th Street,
