Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 10, page 233, May 15-16, 1859

Description: Regarding a book borrowed from James Parton that has notes written in it by Mort Thomson to Grace Eldredge.

Transcription:

[indomi]table Fanny [Fern]. As also phonographic ones by Mort Thomson to the effect of "Gracy [Eldredge] I love you," "Dear Gracy etc." penciled wherever the text becomes passionately amorous. Now as [Jesse] Haney as well as I can read [phonography], Mort's audience is perchance larger than he might desire. It's understood that Mrs [Sophy] Thomson is very proud of the coming match. [Frank] Cahill, unless specially needed for some purpose, when he is gushingly received, gets the cold shoulder at Fan's. Mort is on duty pretty well every night. Grace is understood, in stable phrase, to "feel her oats" a good deal — entertains the conviction that she could get married any day she likes. Likely enough. There may be a break-off in the match, yet, though I think it unlikely.

16. Monday. Writing till near noon. Down town, met [John] Mc Lenan and [Charles] Welden. Mac did a little mystery apropos of [Charles] Dickens' Story of Two Cities, which he illustrates for the Harpies, necessarily therefore reading it a little in advance of the public. And Welden, in telling an anecdote, garnished it with "the unpardonable Sin." To Nic-nax, Pic and Century Offices. Talk for half an hour or so with [Thomas] Mc Elrath and one of his editors apropos of articles proposed for me to do for the paper. Subjects fixed on. Up town. Met Bob Gun, had lager and wrote something he wanted for the paper. Down town again, to Williams & Stevens, apropos of a photograph [Jesse] Haney wants to present to Sally Edwards
