Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 12, page 188, April 29-30, 1860

Description: Mentions seeing Lotty Kidder and Julia Martin in New York.



[Charles Gay]ler and [Charles] Briggs and with reason.

30. Monday. Principally scribbling up the last twenty pages. Out for a walk as far as Chamber St. at sunset. Returning, in Bleecker Street, met Lotty [Kidder] and Miss [Julia] Martin. She was going into a house in Leroy Place, one to which her Houston St. boarding-house friends have just moved to. She intended to sleep at the Smithsonian, wanted me to call on her, during the evening. I saw her, not at the hotel mentioned, but at the Leroy-place house, for twenty minutes or so, when her uncle arrived and called her away. Didn't see said uncle, but she came to New York for that purpose, so she said. [Jesse] Haney at supper with us. Mrs. [Catharine] Potter moves to-day, to another house in the same street. Mrs. [Elizabeth] Griffin ex-Gouverneur goes security for the rent, in her last-written name — an illegal transaction, such a one as women like her and Mrs Potter never demur at. Mrs G. will, likely enough, return to live with Mrs. P. In which case, [William] Leslie's wife [Marion Leslie] objects to boarding there. [James] Morris went off with Haney to help him carry things, subsequently together to [Frank] Bellew's. [George] Boweryem and anon Morris in my room. Did not get to bed till 1, scribbling and talking.
