184

Mrs. W. Leslie talks of Mrs. [Elizabeth] Gouverneur.

[George Bowery]em complained that there was a young fellow, a ladies' man" who at the Unitary House, who used to visit Lotty [Kidder], but who wouldn't reveal the place at which she was residing, though she had invited him, Boweryem, also.

6. Sunday. A June day, sunny and warm. Chores and writing till 5 1/2, then to 16th street, where I supped, subsequently staying till 8 in [William] Leslie's room with him and his wife [Marion Leslie]. She is fair-haired, does not look very young, nor to my thinking attractive, but her face betokens intellect allied to a certain amount of self-assertion, rather latent than demonstrative. She has painted in oil, well for an amateur. She knows certain of Mrs. [Elizabeth] Griffin, ex-Gouverneur's antecedents, recollects Gill her first husband, Rawson [Gill] when a red-haired, freckled boy, his two sisters, one of whom died and the other went to Australia, where she now is. Mrs. G. lived at the Howard House awhile, was expelled from it by the landlord, for an intention of eloping with a male boarder: she had all her trunks packed to start, when the affair was discovered. To 745 [Broadway]. Mr. and Mrs. E. [George and Sarah Edwards] and Matty [Edwards]. Rest of the folks came in soon, Sally [Edwards,] Eliza [Edwards] and [Charles] Honeywell from [E.H.] Chapin's, [Jesse] Haney
