Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 12, page 204, May 11-12, 1860

Description: Describes a letter received from Bob Gun.



A Letter from Bob Gun.

[Will] Waud came in the evening, talked about his doings in Charleston, stayed an hour. To [Frank] Bellew's and returning in the parlor.

12. Saturday. Down-town with [Frank] Cahill. To [Henry] Addey's, got $10. To Post-Office, obtaining a letter from Bob Gun, which, stupidly rejected at our house [132 Bleecker St.], had been advertised in the published lists. He got a letter from [Arthur] Ledger, dated the 8th, has written four to him (which, sent back by [Frank] Cahill, have not reached the inditer) and is anxious about it, as they contained letters to his father and mother, who, not getting them, "will think him drowned." He "has been studying the language very closely," been "very little out of the house and not at all out of Havana," except "along the beach in search of shells." He is lodging in the house with a Col. Newcomb, correspondent of the "N.Y. Herald," sees the papers but wants one illustrated one with the account of the fight [Heenan v. Sayers]. Went to a fight last night "with a hyena, a black panther and dogs." Thus Bob Gun; not a word of what he's doing. To "Nicnax" Office; Cahill and [Jesse] Haney there, anon to "Courier," got $4 owing for a long time, and read proof. Up-town. In the evening with [Amos] Bowman, [James] Morris, and [George] Boweryem to the Academy Exhibition
